Please join the AIA San Francisco, Health + Science Committee to learn about The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Neurosciences Building, designed by Mark Cavagnero Associates, currently under construction on lot 23A at UCSF Mission Bay campus. Design and delivery of the project is using an Integrated Design Team with colocation into a Big Room and an advanced Technical Performance Criteria (TPC) developed by UCSF. Performance based design criteria are valued and provided in excess of the minimum required by the building code. The building will be approximately 280,000sf with six stories above grade floors. The program will be an integrated mix of wet and dry research laboratories, clinical space and supporting offices.
