USC Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cell Research

The Eli & Edythe Broad Center for Integrated Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cell Research (CIRM) is a state-of-the-art facility housing more than 180 researchers conducting studies in regenerative medicine. The 91,000-square-foot building has five levels above grade and one basement level, constructed of a substantial cast-in-place concrete shear wall structure to dampen structural vibration. The building features best-in-class research and teaching laboratories, environmental rooms, tissue/cell culture rooms and a vivarium, as well as amenities such as offices, meeting areas, kitchens, and balconies for informal meetings and interaction. The design includes an elaborate curtain wall system with black granite along the west elevation.

Scope of work included conventional steel mat foundation; shear walls and columns; slab-on-grade, waste slabs, and fill on metal deck; elevated decks; and various miscellaneous items.
