Point Loma Nazarine University Science Center Receives Multiple Awards

June 21, 2018

PLNU Science Center

In partnership with Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, the design team has earned several major design award honors for the Point Loma Nazarine University Science Center (Sator Hall and Latter Hall) in San Diego, California.

Coffman Engineers (as Hope-Amundson) provided structural engineering services for a 36,000-square-foot, two-story, concrete framed, state-of-the-art science building. Sator and Latter Hall feature 13 flexible research laboratories and support space, offices, four classrooms, an astronomy telescope deck and conference rooms with new media and distance learning capabilities to meet the modern needs of the Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Math and Computer Science Departments.

Framed in cast-in-place concrete, the project includes an elevated walkway leading to a patio with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. A curved stainless-steel environmental screen on the exterior of the building is angled away to reflect heat away from the building and reflect light back onto the patio. A pedestrian bridge connects the new science building to Rohr Hall, the University’s existing sciences curriculum facility.
