Abstract/Artist Statement

The current Hydraulics Laboratory located at 3628 Stagg Way at the University of the Pacific provides a shared lab space of approximately 2000 square feet on the ground floor and a conference room on the second floor. The current layout does not provide adequate space for both labs resulting in some geotechnical equipment being located at the south campus. Our design for the new building will provide ample space for both fluids and geotechnical labs. VAMM will be providing a site layout and a design of an ADA compliant two story steel structure with a basement. The design will also encompass an open web joist deck which will allow for mechanical equipment to pass through the structure and also result in reduced loads on the footings. A water feature and storm management system will also be designed. Part of our core design will also be a CEQA report that will showcase VAMM’s commitment to the environment. The new Civil Engineering Laboratory building will feature a basement that will serve as an access point to the elevator well and provide space for utilities. On the first floor the new Civil Engineering Laboratory building will have separate lab sections for fluids and geotechnical labs, each with adequate space to house and store equipment, thereby eliminating the need to have equipment stored in different locations. The current layout for the second floor has a shared conference room that does not conform to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for access, and does not include a secondary emergency exit. A secondary emergency exit stairway will also be designed. In addition to the conference room, a classroom will be added. The secondary exit stairs will allow for a future connection between the Civil Engineering Laboratory building and the adjacent Baun Hall building.
