January 27, 2005
Faculty, staff, students, donors and dignitaries gathered on January 27th to celebrate the “topping off” of the Stanley Biosciences and Bioengineering Facility, future home of the Bioengineering Department. “Topping off” is a tradition in the construction trades, commemorating the successful completion of the 11-story steel superstructure of the building.
After brief remarks from QB3 director Graham Fleming, faculty director of the Berkeley Health Sciences Initiative Robert Tjian, and Chancellor Birgeneau, attendees mingled, snacked, and viewed research posters by bioengineering and QB3 faculty.
The building is scheduled for completion in mid-2006.
