New $71.5 Mil Science & Innovation Building at CSU Dominguez Hills is Finished


California State University, Dominguez Hills’ new $71.5 mil Science & Innovation Building has been completed. The 87k sf facility features state-of-the-art laboratories, faculty offices and classrooms that will help prepare the university’s students for careers in science, technology engineering and math (STEM). The project was built by C.W. Driver Companies, working with HGA Architects & Engineers.

The façade features alternating blue and gray colored panels meant to convey a decoded DNA strand, while bamboo wood and metal panels line the interior. To accommodate the facility’s science and technology uses, C.W. Driver Companies installed sophisticated mechanical and plumbing systems, including special supply and return air ducting, more than 60 fume hoods and extensive laboratory waste disposal systems. Electrical systems line every classroom, consisting of medium and low voltage utilities, data ports, and substantial audio-visual features.

Toyota USA Foundation provided a $4 mil grant to CSU Dominguez Hills that was used in part to fund the project. In recognition of this generous grant, the Toyota Center for Innovation in STEM Education was established in the building. The Toyota Center features a fabrication lab, spaces for K-12 teaching demonstrations and training, SMART classrooms, collaborative workstations and an outdoor workspace.

The Science and Innovation Building was designed to achieve LEED® Platinum Certification. It features regional and recycled materials such as limestone plaster, an aluminum composite panel rain screen system, energy efficient storefront windows and curtain walls as well as exterior shading devices to enhance energy efficiency.

The team at C.W. Driver included: Tom Jones, project executive; Sam Huleis, senior project manager; Megan Morrissey, assistant project manager; Rich Sadowski, senior superintendent; Koty Maywhort, assistant superintendent; Nick Dispenza, assistant superintendent; Jonathan Muller, senior project engineer; Diana Fraire, project engineer and Mark Vondran, chief estimator.
