UCLA Wasserman Building at Jules Stein Eye Institute

UCLA Wasserman Building at Jules Stein Eye Institute

The Edie & Lew Wasserman Building is a six-level, 112,000-square-foot building on UCLA’s main Westwood campus. The lower level and a portion of the plaza level are designed to OSHPD 3 standards to accommodate six operating rooms and facilities for oculoplastics and cataract and refractive surgery, a medical gas tank farm, procedure rooms, and a pharmacy. The building includes clinics, procedure rooms, diagnostic rooms, private offices, and support spaces such as a surgical training laboratory, 70-seat IMAX-style conference center, and telemedicine suite.


The building is constructed of architectural concrete shear walls with structural steel framing and its exterior façade features expansive curtain walls and terracotta panels. Morley Construction Company provided concrete subcontracting services for the project, totaling 6,400 cubic yards. Over 2,400 cubic yards of concrete was required to construct the walls; wall form area totaled 91,600 square feet. Extensive mockups were constructed to refine the mix design and forming materials. The concrete within the building not only provides the structural requirements necessary but also serves as a prominent architectural feature of the project.
