Who we are and what we do.

Facilities Design and Construction provides many services to the Caltech community including the construction of new buildings and the renovation of existing space.  The role of Design and Construction is to provide the environment needed to facilitate the work of the world class faculty, researchers, students and staff who work and study at attend Caltech.

Design and Construction is involved from the initial concept through the programming/development, design, planning, scheduling and construction phases of labs, office space and entire building construction. We also provide the required interfacing between the campus and City of Pasadena.  The office maintains space information, campus maps and provides planning assistance for campus groups.

Some of our work involves the renovation of existing buildings and includes customized laboratory, research and office space as well as the renovation of classrooms, lecture halls, libraries and areas for athletics, all of which are designed to the specifications of the end users.
