Morley Construction provided self-performing concrete services to Benchmark Contractors for this new two-story, 25,000 sf state-of-the-art Science Education and Research Facility at the Crossroads School campus in Santa Monica. The project includes a Special Projects Pavilion for small break out groups and faculty preparation spaces linked to all of the classrooms, promoting collaboration among the teaching staff. Additional elements include glass facades, a decorative and multicolored shotcrete wall, rooftop living laboratory and a wind and gravity activated kinetic sculpture designed by world-renowned artist Ned Kahn.
Sustainable elements include nearby access to public transportation (bus and subway), water efficient landscaping, a storm water retention system, LED lighting throughout, photo voltaic paneling and utilization of low-VOC materials. Construction waste was mitigated to reduce landfill impacts.
