California Institute of Technology
Ranked #1 of World-Class Universities
Caltech, a private research university, was ranked #1 in the Times Higher Education magazine’s 2012–2013 World University Rankings. Their campus consists of 124 acres at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. Its footprint has expanded over the years through acquisition of surrounding properties and associated public rights of way and utilities.
Caltech’s expansive real estate and geographic location required extensive civil engineering to meet the goals of campus development. Psomas has consulted with Caltech over the years providing ongoing support for infrastructure master planning, design services for new facilities and interim “swing space,” as well as design for relocation of major Caltech and Pasadena-owned utilities (multi-jurisdiction support).
