College students aspiring to solve some of the world’s most critical health problems may soon have the ideal forum to realize their goals at the new Health Sciences Biomedical Research Facility, being built by McCarthy Building Companies (www.mccarthy.com) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in La Jolla. ZGF Architects, LLP, is the project architect.

Located on a 3.3-acre site within the UCSD School of Medicine campus, the 196,000-sf Heath Sciences Biomedical Research Facility is being built to achieve LEED Platinum Certification, and potentially could receive notoriety as being the highest performing laboratory facility in the entire country. McCarthy construction crews recently completed the last concrete pour on the five-story building, celebrating the milestone with a topping out barbecue luncheon for site workers.  Final project completion is scheduled for August 2013.

Boone Hellmann, campus architect for UCSD, heads the Facilities Design and Construction office charged with implementing the $105 million project, with James Gillie, senior director of construction services for UCSD, supervising construction and Mark Rowland charged with overall project management. +
