Renewal Projects

Renewal Projects are where existing building space(s) are renovated to meet the mission needs of our Caltech community. These type of projects are what makes up the majority of the work that Design & Construction does. Each year based off the needs and requests from each division, a number of Renewal projects will be generated.  Design & Construction will then begin the process of project programming, demo and renovation. These projects can range from a single office or lab, to outside spaces or even the majority of a floor within a building. Below, are a number of projects that Design & Construction has completed over the last few years.

Some Renewal projects are done to make exterior spaces better. This project added shade sails to an exterior space to make it more useable during the hotter parts of the year when the patio would get an abundance of Southern sun exposure.
