Project details

Biosite Corporate Headquarters – Master Plan

The project consisted of the Master plan of a new corporate campus for Biosite Incorporated, a San Diego-based company that develops diagnostic products. The master plan comprises 800,000 square feet of new facilities in nine buildings, and a multi-level parking structure on a 32.6 acre site in San Diego, California. The project was designed in the Bauhaus style with tilt-up concrete construction proposed for the majority of the buildings on site. The site is organized around central courtyard spaces for employees to enjoy and use for various work related functions. The main building on the headquarters site was designed with a six story administrative tower connected to an adjacent Conference Center and amenities building. Utilizing a green roof with a central oculus opening and ground level gardens the two story Conference Center building was sustainably designed and introduced natural daylight into all of its function spaces. The main building was situated along the Grand Allee’ which bisected the project from East to West and connected the main parking areas to the center of the campus. The first Phase of the project was realized in 2005 with the completion of four of the nine buildings totaling 335,000 square feet.
