Dibble was fortunate to be part of both the programming and design teams for the new $129 million project. Located on the ASU Downtown Phoenix Campus, this project is a six-story, 260,000 square foot building with two levels of underground parking. The building is designed with a dense urban development footprint on 3.6 acre site. A portion of the site was reserved to allow for future development that might further serve the ASU Center for Law & Society. The site design for the building considered the adjacent ASU campus and was designed to encourage pedestrian connectivity to the existing campus buildings.

ISTB IV is a flagship facility for researchers in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Dibble provided site civil engineering services for a 240,000 square foot high-rise structure that is geared toward facilitating multi-institutional ventures. The facility was designed to accommodate sophisticated and high technology equipment that is sensitive to vibration and EMI impacts. Dibble's design scope included: working with the contractor, architect, and owner to establish a site/circulation plan; preparing grading and drainage, utility, and utility relocation plans; and abandoning and providing new utility easements. An adjacent private road was also converted into a pedestrian mall while maintaining vehicular access to the adjacent parking garage for delivery vehicles. This building achieved LEED Gold Certification.
