Project Description

UCSF’s vision for the 264,000-square-foot Global Health & Clinical Sciences Building was to create a new hub for its growing Mission Bay campus. The building needed to consolidate dozens of departments working in leased spaces throughout San Francisco and forge a link between academic, research and medical sectors. The facility is an interdisciplinary, flexible, light-filled environment inspired by the latest thinking in workplace and academic design. Offices accommodate faculty providing clinical care in the new Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital, and Cancer Center at Mission Bay. The facility houses approximately 1,500 faculty, staff, fellows, and residents in open workstations and shared activity spaces, maximizing space efficiency. Modular work spaces, hard wall huddle and focus rooms, and multiple conference rooms throughout the building accommodate the activity space needs. This project achieved LEED Gold NC.

“I strongly recommend the design-build team of WRNS Studio and Rudolph and Sletten. Together they delivered the Mission Hall: Global Health & Clinical Sciences Building in the truest sense of 'design-build done right.' We, UCSF, supplied clear direction through our technical criteria documents, and this team achieved our goals with a limited budget and a very aggressive design and construction schedule.”
