Project Description

During a master planning effort in 2012, Steinberg worked in concert with Whittier College to identify an opportunity to renovate and better utilize the 1966 Stauffer Science Building, rather than build a new expansion. The newly named “Science and Learning Center” will embody a modern science pedagogy built on the tenets of interdisciplinary study and social collaboration. The renovation intends to make the iconic building a new campus hub while putting “science on display.” Steinberg is currently completing Construction Administration for the renovation project, which includes re-planning the entire building into collaborative learning environments, seismic and accessibility upgrades, new utility infrastructure and equipment, redesign of the building exterior skin to “display science,” and a 5th level penthouse activation with outdoor learning environments, a green roof and gathering spaces. The existing building slab has been cut to create a two story building lobby that also supports a student study space, coupled with new building identity entry points.
