The 190,000-sf Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience, which opens next month on the campus of the University of Southern California, will provide research and lab space for the Engineering, Arts & Sciences, and Medical schools. This is the largest building on campus, and its construction required more than 50,000 yards of soil to be exported, 4.5 million pounds of concrete and rebar for poured-in-place floors and walls, and 2,000-plus steel embeds for a suspended clean room plenum leel and exterior masonry.
