California State University, East Bay - Wayne and Gladys Valley Business and Technology Center
The 67,000 square foot Wayne & Gladys Valley Business and Technology Center was the first new academic building on the Cal State University East Bay-Hayward Campus in more than 30 years. It serves as a resource for all students at the university, providing a state-of-the-art home for programs in business, technology management, engineering, multimedia, science, and online degree programs.
The Hayward, CA, project cost more than $27 million and features include a multimedia presentation center, a management case study room, 97 offices, 17 classrooms and labs, and 8 conference rooms. The unique formation of the building allowed for the use of multiple CENTRIA products.
Thermally efficient Formawall® Dimension Series® in Off-White and Chromium Gray made up the main exterior wall panels, while FormaBond® Rout and Return in Aluminum Off-White was used for a highly designed section that juts off the side of the building. CENTRIA Formavue 500 windows provide a modern and sleek appearance stemming from their smooth integration with the Formawall Dimension Series panels.
