There has been an increase in student and union-related activism that has focused increasingly on the Chancellor’s residence (the Audrey Geisel University House) with negative impacts for the residents and a constant threat of unauthorized access. After a security assessment was conducted by the UC San Diego Police Department, the campus was advised to improve security, most urgently to install access controls in the form of automated gates that will deter access by those not authorized to enter the property. The project would install two new security gates at the existing driveways. The North gate (main gate) will electronically operate with programmable remote devices, while the South gate will be manually operated and locked. The scope includes new electrical conduits for the main gate and repair of asphalt and landscaping in accordance with the University House Maintenance and Operations Plan. An approximately 50-foot-long by 2-foot-deep excavation is required to supply power to the automated gate. Five posts will be required to set the gate and entry pad. Each post would require an approximately 2-foot-square excavation approximately 2 feet deep. No heavy equipment is required, other than a pickup truck and materials delivery truck. Trenching and post setting will be done using hand tools.
