Lawrence Berkeley National Lab Integrative Genomics Building
This new 78,500 square foot genomics research building and central offices will consolidate the existing Joint Genome Institute and the Systems Biology Knowledgebase group. The new facility will be the first building of the new Biosciences quad at LBNL, which is planned for a final 500,000 square foot build-out. The Biosciences group will be a key support of the DOE Grand Challenge in Science and Technology to reduce energy impacts on society.
This building will be a mixed-use facility consisting of wet laboratories, dry laboratories, computational data center and office spaces. The project also includes a 5,000 square foot modular utility plant that will serve the main building. The utility plant is designed to be expandable and will be able to support up to five more buildings.
The project, funded by the Department of Energy, must achieve energy usage goals 30% better than ASHRAE 90.1 and 50% better than the building it’s replacing.
Integral Group is providing full mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services, as well as lighting and daylighting. This will be LBNL’s first building with radiant slab heating and cooling and chilled beams in the labs.
