Estructure is providing peer review of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences located at Mission Bay in San Francisco. This building, combined with the nearby Sandler Neurosciences Center and Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall, makes the neuroscience complex at UCSF Mission Bay one of the largest in the world. The new Weill Institute will provide bench laboratory research in psychiatry and neuroscience, desktop and clinical research, a vivarium, and associated support spaces. The building is 6 stories tall, 270,000 square feet, and has a construction budget of $200M.
Maryann Phipps serves as lead peer reviewer as part of the UCSF Seismic Review Committee. Peer review includes establishing project design criteria, and working with the integrated project delivery team to create a building capable of being quickly back in operation after an earthquake and protecting UCSF’s investment in research. All aspects of the project design are included in the peer review including the concrete shear wall structure and pile foundation, cladding, architectural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, and all laboratory functions.
