Pacific Center Campus R&D Building


BNIM led the initial Campus Master Plan and Conceptual Design process, which was completed in April 2012, for the Pacific Center Campus Development. In August of that year, BNIM was again selected to lead the design of a two-building campus expansion.

PROJECT SIZE: 357,000 SF – R+D Building

The two buildings add 410,000 square feet of office, dry laboratory, catering/café, health center, fitness center, lecture hall, multi-purpose learning, and conference space to the campus. Both buildings have received LEED gold certification. The new buildings are integrated into an overall campus environment that is organized around properly scaled public spaces, public amenities, and clear circulation systems.
The campus experience provides a dynamic social environment for employees, fostering a spirit of community on the new Pacific Center Campus Development. The Research and Development (R&D) Building accommodates new office and laboratory spaces. Interior environments focus on enhancing employees’ individual surroundings to be more comfortable, inspiring and healthier. Laboratories are centrally located with adjacent workplaces for teams to interact seamlessly with the research environment.
