University of California, Santa Barbara Starts Work on $78 Mil Classroom Building

The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) has broken ground on a new four-story classroom building. The $78 mil, 95k sf project is being built by C.W. Driver Companies.

The new structure will include approximately 2,000 seats of classroom space, which will house a variety of lecture halls, project-based learning spaces and flexible discussion rooms to encourage academic growth for the university's students. The project is expected to complete in Winter 2022.

The building will be comprised of 32 classrooms and lecture halls, each seating between 30 and 350 students. Other key additions include 1,700 bicycle parking spaces, as well as a vibrant new "street" corridor that connects major access points to the new building, encourages interactions among students and faculty and creates areas for informal gatherings. These spaces will be exposed to sun and daylight throughout most the day, ensuring thermal comfort for most of the year. Views from upper-level classrooms along the central street space will connect building occupants to UCSB's Pardall Mall to the west, UCSB's Library Mall to the north and the ocean to the south.

Designed by LMN Architects, the new building is intended to be a microcosm of the societal and natural conditions around the site. The architecture and material palette take advantage of the Southern Californian climate and echo the geological conditions of the nearby seaside cliffs. The project is designed to achieve LEEDŽ Gold certification or higher.
