Hochtief’s US subsidiary Turner Construction Company has won a contract to build the 380,000-sq-ft Gateway Project at University of California, Berkeley.
The building will house 1,600 students and staff at the university’s Division of Computing, Data Science and Society (CDSS), and will have laboratories, offices, meeting rooms, classrooms, a café and gallery.
Construction is expected to start in October 2022, with the building is anticipated to open in 2025, Hochtief said.Â
Gateway is Turner’s eighth project for UC Berkeley since 1993.
Merrill Bowers, Turner vice president, said: "For Turner Construction Company, this project is a continuation of a rich, 30-year history of working for UC Berkeley. Like cues already seen in early design renderings, we too respect and appreciate the past while embracing the future with hope and bright expectation."
