Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil and building construction company, today announced that its subsidiary, Rudolph and Sletten, together with design partner WRNS Studio, was awarded a $94 million design-build contract for the University of California, San Francisco Mission Bay Block 25A Academic Building. The 266,000 gross-square-foot, seven-story academic building will include huddle rooms, focus rooms, open workstations, conference rooms, classrooms, a learning center, and retail spaces. The project scope also includes site utilities, connections to existing utilities, a landscaped courtyard, and various other site improvements.
The Block 25A academic building is designed to function as office space for more than 1,000 faculty, staff, fellows, and residents that will be providing clinical care in the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay across the street, which will include UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, a women’s specialty hospital, and an adult hospital for cancer patients. Block 25A will also provide work space for academic groups currently located elsewhere on UCSF’s campuses or in leased space. Design and preconstruction work is starting immediately, and construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2013. Block 25A project completion is scheduled for August 2014. The new hospital complex is scheduled to open on February 1, 2015.
“Our team worked diligently to develop a comprehensive design, which was evaluated every step of the way to ensure compliance with the client’s unique project requirements. Once again, creative ideas and innovative solutions, coupled with a very integrated team approach with our design and design-build subcontractor partners, led us to a project that not only met the client’s programmatic needs, but also provided a superior design aesthetic and commitment to sustainability – all within the overall budget. We are thrilled to be working with the UCSF team on another successful project,” said Martin Sisemore, President and CEO of Rudolph and Sletten.
