Amgen Building 15 LAR Expansion Research Laboratory Facility
Thousand Oaks, California
A research laboratory and vivarium facility totaling 50,000 square feet. This three story building utilized 18’ floor to floor heights to accommodate a full interstitial ceiling space for extensive mechanical systems at each of the three levels. The design team worked closely with the contractor during the design phase to develop constructible, cost effective solutions to difficult logistics problems. Tight site constraints and 35-foot excavation shoring requirements, immediately adjacent to an existing building, necessitated innovative structural solutions by the team members.
