Seismic Life Safety, Modernization, and Replacement of General Purpose Buildings, Phase 2 Project
Project Description

The proposed project includes demolition of existing structures (Buildings 25/25B, 55, and up to six modular trailers associated with Building 71), the construction of an approximately 43,000 gross square foot General Purpose Laboratory (GPL), and the seismic strengthening of an existing structure (Building 85). The primary project objectives include supporting Berkeley Lab’s ongoing research mission through provision of seismically safe, modern life science research space, along with improving efficiency and consolidating functions.
