Li Ka-Shing Center

OverviewLi Ka-Shing Center

University of California, Berkeley, serves as one of the leading research universities in the nation. Upon receiving a generous $40 million donation from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the university set out to design a highly advanced and modular research facility to provide significant advancements in the areas of infectious disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer biology, stem cell biology, and brain imaging. This new 200,000 sf research facility includes over 30 research and teaching laboratories as well as auditoriums, lecture halls, conference rooms, and office spaces. This facility ensures that UC Berkeley maintains its leading position, while providing the community with the latest medical discoveries.

Li Ka-Shing Center TEECOM’s Contribution

TEECOM completed the telecommunications design for this new, 6-story state-of-the-art research facility that houses a laboratory, auditorium, classrooms, conference rooms, and office space. In addition, TEECOM was brought on for security services during the Construction Administration (CA) phase to make necessary updates and improvements to the security design that had not met the client’s standards.

Behind the Walls

Computer scientists, biologists, physicists, engineers, chemists, mathematicians, and other top talent are delivering breakthroughs at Li Ka Shing; the last event they want is a breakdown in the facility’s technology. Bandwidth, functionality, performance, and lightning-speed connectivity are musts for these user groups. TEECOM delivered technology designs that guarantee the utility is always fully available and ready to enable epiphanies within this community.
