UCSF Health Sciences Renovation

The latest in laboratory research and instructional environments

A full seismic retrofit and renovation of multiple floors of the Health Science Instruction & Research (HSIR) towers on UCSF's Parnassus campus. The design carefully balanced the needs of the university to create flexible spaces that can evolve with future research directions with the needs of the current researchers. The unique requirements of the researchers—including specialized HVAC systems for hazardous biomaterial and precise temperature control for live specimens—were accommodated within the constraints of the existing, occupied building.
