University of California, Berkeley – Richard C. Blum Center for Developing Economies (Naval Architecture Building Restoration & Expansion)
Blum Center for Developing Economies
Also known as the Naval Architecture Building (NAB) Addition and Renovation, this project consists of a 13,000 SF addition to the NAB as well as a seismic retrofit, historic renovation, and code upgrade. To respect the history of the NAB, dating back to 1914, the new addition is set back 16 feet from the existing building. A pedestrian bridge connects the second floor wings and a ground-level plaza links the entire project to nearby buildings.
The project is certified LEED Silver.
