Theory and Computing Sciences Building

Fostering the San Diego biotech culture of collaboration, i3 consists of three new multi-story laboratory and office buildings located in the heart of the San Diego biotech community. The campus also features a 16,000-square-foot amenities area, outdoor conferencing and auditorium, an open courtyard, a modern fitness center, and a unique market and café. The project also includes green roofs, electric car charging stations, operable windows for natural ventilation.

EXP designed the MEP/Low voltage systems for the approximately 300,000 square feet core and shell to support future multiple tenants with today’s flexibility demands. The next phase consisted of a 200,000 square feet tenant improvement for long-term client Illumina.

An aggressive schedule and a high-performance team fostered great and necessary teamwork throughout the project. The team was able to overcome site space constraints and meeting the budget.
