UCR MRB1

Riverside, CA

$ 6.0mil

A cross-disciplinary research hub for life/chemical sciences, medicine, and engineering, this five-story building is home to four floors of open, collaborative laboratories over a vivarium. The facility holds 40,000 NSF of wet/dry/flex laboratory space for 40 wet/damp research grounds and ten dry/computational research groups, as well as space for a 60-person seminar room.
Utilizing sustainable design strategies, the design team exceeded expectations by creating a LEED Platinum research facility—one of few laboratories buildings to achieve this accolade and the first to do so on UCR’s campus.
