Construction Completed on 91k sf Educational Center Biola University in La Mirada


The Alton and Lydia Lim Center for Science, Technology and Health at Biola University in La Mirada has been completed. The 91.2k sf educational center will serve the institution’s fast growing and high-demand science, technology and health programs, and triples the amount of space devoted to these fields at the university.

The expansive new facility, which marks the university’s most ambitious building project to date, boasts sustainable features throughout to optimize energy and water use efficiency. The $63 mil project was built by C.W. Driver Companies.

Comprised of four floors with learning space in, around and on top of the building, the lower level is home to the nursing program and vibration sensitive labs. The first floor is dedicated to anatomy and biology, the second floor to biology and physics and the third floor to chemistry. To maximize space and complement the university’s developing botany program, the rooftop features an observatory with an on-site greenhouse.

In total, the facility offers 28 laboratories, including a dedicated microscope lab for SEM (scanning and electron microscope) and TEM (transmission electron microscope) work, five classrooms, various research and flexible work spaces and innovative resources to cultivate adaptation to new sciences, technology and pedagogy.

The Lim Center was constructed with a stiff, structural steel frame to protect the facility’s sensitive instruments. The project was awarded the LEED® Silver certification for its dedication to sustainability and received 21 Golden Gate Awards, a new record for California, for demonstrating workplace safety and health during the California OSHA Consolation Service visit.

In addition to project executive Tom Jones, the C.W. Driver Companies project team included Scott Kaufman, project manager; Stephen du Toit, superintendent and Britney Calucag, senior project engineer. C.W. Driver Companies worked alongside Gensler, The Raymond Group, Al-Cal, DSM and Safway on the project.
