- University Student Union Project
- This project will construct a 78,757 GSF facility that will provide a large ballroom, meeting rooms, Associated Student and student organization offices, food services, lounges, a coffee shop, and recreational areas. The University Student Union will be four levels conforming to the natural slope declination from the top Forum Plaza level down to Cesar Chavez Circle. The design utilizes a steel braced frame that wraps around an interior courtyard with a presentation stage and terraced seating. Much of the building exterior facade is a composition of large-scale, stone-like textured ceramic tile and floor to ceiling glass curtain wall. The building will provide access at multiple levels and enable unrestricted access for the disabled. Sustainable features include extensive use of day lighting, high performance glazing, and photovoltaics on a significant portion of the flat roof areas. Other features include high efficiency HVAC systems, automated controls for lighting and HVAC for areas with operable windows, and green roofs to reduce heat island effect. The project will seek LEED Gold certification.
