Lawrence Berkeley National Lab Integrative Genomics Building
The new 78,500 square foot genomics research building and central offices consolidate the existing Joint Genome Institute and the Systems Biology Knowledgebase group. The new facility is the first building of the new biosciences quad at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (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 is a mixed-use facility consisting of wet laboratories, dry laboratories, a computational data center, and office spaces. The project also includes a 5,000 square foot modular utility plant that serves 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, achieves energy usage goals 30% better than ASHRAE 90.1 and 50% better than the building it replaced.
