Caltech - Professor Hutzler Physics Laboratory

Research Laboratories

Pasadena, CA

This 2,029 S.F. renovation located on the first floor of the Downs-Lauritsen Laboratories Building and was designed for Professor Hutzler. The laboratory uses lasers for experiments in nuclear and particle physics. Due to the sensitive nature of measurements being made in the laboratory, the design team assisted with the design of special enclosures around the equipment. This included HEPA filtered air, sprinklers, and extensive power capacity. Installation of a crane rail for moving heavy equipment around the lab required extensive coordination with the enclosures. Lundstrom & Associates Architects provided laboratory planning through construction phase services for this Design-Build project.
