Kalzip highlights Steven Spielberg Building on Cedars Sinai Health Systems in the Los Angeles campus.
The Cedars Sinai Health System’s Los Angeles campus is a busy area with many different types of buildings. One of those, the Steven Spielberg Building, now features a
unique design element created with a blend of curved and straight Kalzip perforated material. This architecturally appealing feature also serves an important purpose.
The Steven Spielberg Building houses an ambulatory care center and research aboratories. When administrators decided to add additional laboratories within the building it involved a comprehensive remodel of the third floor.
The project included a seismic retrofit because of the increased load capacity on the upper level. The retrofit involved placing a lateral restraint system outside the building using cross-braced, three-story towers adjacent to the building. One side faced an alley where appearance was not a concern. But the east side of the building faced the rest of the campus, including the nearby hospital and parking lot, so its appearance was most important.
The building is a nine-storey, plus basement, triangular design situated on the southwest quadrant of the main campus surrounded by beautiful aspen trees adding to the green, lush landscape in the area.
Connected to the Dining Centre and the Residence Services office through an underground tunnel system, students can go virtually anywhere on campus without going outside, perfect for winter!
A wide-range of activities and events are organized for residents, ranging from excursions to the famed Canadian Rockies, to community BBQs, road hockey tournaments and more!
Mentoring, academic support programming and leadership opportunities will be available to all students living in Aurora Hall.
The building is energy efficient and designed to meet The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification – an internationally recognized rating system assessing the environmental sustainability of building designs.
