The Hertz Hall Complex is now complete and celebrated it's ribbon cutting in October!
The Hertz Hall Complex is a set of three university-owned buildings on a site administered through a 50-year ground lease between the Department of Energy (DOE)/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and The Regents of the University of California. The building complex is located within the Livermore Valley Open Campus (LVOC), along the eastern edge of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), in Livermore, California. The existing Hertz Hall Complex was improved to house administrative spaces, classrooms, flex lab, mixture of conference rooms, collaborative work/lounge areas, and breakrooms. The overall design of the elements stayed within the existing characteristics and context of the buildings and surroundings.
The work included: life safety considerations, AV systems, disabled access , IT (data) systems, seismic performance, telecommunications, MEP systems, interior finishes, energy efficiency and roof and gutter repairs. The welcoming spaces of the completed Hertz Hall project allows for an interaction to take place on a couple of different levels. For one it creates an opportunity for knowledge sharing between the scientists and researchers at the LLNL with academic professionals and students within the UC system. The facility also hosts programs led by the LLNL and UC professionals throughout the school year and in the summer where local K-12 educators and students can get hands on STEM education and experience.
