Carlsbad Research Center

carlsbadresearchWe constructed a 31,200 SF two-story industrial/office facility in the city of Carlsbad located on a 1.78 acre site.  The structure was erected on a terraced corner lot which required 6000 CY of earth cut and 1690 CY of fill in order to level the site for construction.  A crib wall was installed on the low side of the property, while a seven foot high retaining wall with a brow ditch and fossil filter was constructed on the upper side.

The 32 foot high structure incorporates a truck well, a 5,100 SF second floor area and features blue reflective spandrel glass curtain wall at the apex of the building – all softened by extensive placement of ground covers and mature trees.

The large exposed concrete slab leading to the buildings front entry was banded with gray concrete and accented with sand blasted light bollards and columns as well as an exposed aggregate seat wall.  As a final touch 12 x 12 french gray stamped tiles were placed contiguous to the building’s Herculite entry doors.
