In a cooperative effort with the University of California at Berkeley and the Environmental Protection Agency, Wareham constructed the first laboratory building on a 3.5-acre site on the University of California's Richmond campus. Today, this single-story facility houses the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Region IX Laboratory. In 2005, a co-generation unit was added to the building as part of an overall energy efficiency upgrade project. Included in the master plan for the center is a 10,000-square-foot expansion.
