SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Building 41 Renovation
Menlo Park, California
Renovation, Design-Build, LEED Gold
Taylor worked with multiple project stakeholders and building occupants on this renovation of a 1964-era building. The design had to be functionally efficient and flexible, while meeting a variety of individual programmatic needs. The new building will provide a modern and attractive environment for staff, upgrade deficient building systems, and meet current accessibility standards. Because it will be home to multiple departments with varied needs over time, the space planning features a standardized layout, allowing flexibility as uses and users change. Public and group spaces are organized around a central courtyard while private spaces are located at the perimeter. By utilizing daylighting, open floor plans, enhanced lighting, and optimized HVAC systems, the project aims to achieve LEED Gold. The design-build team delivered the construction documents in multiple, phased packages to meet an aggressive construction schedule. Program: Office space; workplace support space, including conference space; special-use rooms; storage areas; common building areas.
