The University of California, Santa Barbara began construction on the $56 million Henley Hall in October of 2018. Housing the Institute for Energy Efficiency, the three-story, 49,000-gsf facility will provide 17 labs, faculty and administrative offices, a 125-seat lecture hall, conference rooms, and an atrium.
