The Scott A. McGregor Computer Science Center has recently completed on the Harvey Mudd College campus in Claremont, Calif.

The three-story, 36,000-sf building brings the entirety of the computer science program under one roof for the first time. The project includes labs, clinic space, student study and collaboration space, and administrative and faculty offices.

A expansive lobby on the first floor welcomes students and visitors and provides space to study, gather, and collaborate. Faculty offices, clinic and project studios, teaching and research laboratories, and collaboration spaces all meant to serve the computer science program are housed on the second and third floors.

The computer science space brings together the previously fragmented elements such as student project areas, clinic program work areas, and computer labs. These floors encircle a central courtyard that brings transparency and natural light to the building’s circulation spaces.

The building also includes a makerspace for use by the entire campus. The makerspace design is focused on creating one large open workspace for collaboration, networking, and socialization. The space features a zoned layout that includes a collaborative lounge, co-working and idea development areas, rapid prototyping, and light-to-medium fabrication. The makerspace is located adjacent to renovated metal and wood machine shops for heavy fabrication needs.

In addition to Steinberg Hart, the build team also included DPR Construction.
