UCLA Engineering VI – Phase 2
This 93,000 square-foot research and academic building completes the school’s six-building engineering school complex.
The five-story building is located on a site adjacent to UCLA’s main entrance and interconnects with two other engineering facilities.
The first level of the steel-framed structure features multiple conference spaces and a 250-seat auditorium, complete with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment. The upper levels contain offices, classrooms, and flexible spaces to accommodate engineering labs. The building’s exterior features include terracotta stone and brick veneer and a glazed curtain wall system. A skybridge connects the structure to two nearby buildings. A new loading dock and reconfigured roadways complete the site.
Designed to achieve LEED® Gold certification, the engineering building has a rooftop photovoltaic solar panel array, active chilled beams with operable windows, and solar chimneys and light tubes to distribute natural light to interior spaces.
