Engineering Center construction update
Work begins the week of June 12, 2023, on the construction of the Engineering Center, a new facility on the UC Berkeley campus that will become a nexus for student collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship. Slated for completion in early 2025, the new center will add 35,500 square feet across two new floors above the existing two floors of the Bechtel Engineering Center. This page provides an overview of key construction updates created for occupants and visitors of neighboring buildings. Information about the project is also available on the Capital Strategies website.
Questions or concerns about how the upcoming construction activities may impact daily operations, research or instruction should be directed to your building coordinator.
