Students at San Diego State University will have more exceptional housing, retail and restaurant offerings to choose from when Sundt completes the new South Campus Plaza in late 2016. The $143 million, university construction project includes two residential buildings above all ground-floor retail, and an adjacent parking structure. The residence halls will house 608 beds in double-occupancy student rooms, 32 single-occupancy student rooms, three staff apartments and three visiting scholar studios.
Members of the university and project team celebrated the project’s groundbreaking together.
Sustainability is also being emphasized at South Campus Plaza. The nearly 350,000-square-foot design-build project has been designed by SVA Architects and SGPA Architecture and Planning to achieve LEED Silver certification from the United States Green Building Council.

It may look new now, but the completed building will have a historic look so that it blends seamlessly with the surrounding architecture.
Students, faculty and staff at California State University Channel Islands are eagerly anticipating the completion of a state-of-the-art classroom and lab building at the heart of their historic campus in Camarillo, California. Work is progressing smoothly and the project is on track to be complete in time for the start of the 2015 fall semester.
The scope of Sundt’s $32 million university construction project includes demolition and abatement of the original West Hall, courtyard walls, and a small outbuilding. The main project (awarded separately) includes construction of the three-story, 66,500-gross-square-foot classroom and laboratory building, which will house state-of-the-art labs, offices, lecture halls, and related support spaces to accommodate growth in the departments of computer science, environmental science, geography, geology, psychology and physics.
The structure consists of steel and CMU construction with high end interior woodwork, laboratory classroom finishes and exposed ground and polished concrete floors. The focal point of the building is a second level “green roof” planted like a garden.

The CSU, Channel Islands West Hall project will be complete in time for the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
California State University, Channel Islands is well on its way to having a new classroom and laboratory building in the heart of its historic campus in Camarillo. The 66,500-square-foot, four-story West Hall building will house labs, offices, lecture halls, and related support spaces to accommodate growth in the departments of computer science, environmental science, geography, geology, psychology and physics. The structure will also include a “green roof” planted like a garden.
Sundt is performing the $32 million university construction project safely and without major impacts or disruptions to the campus, says Project Manager Van Duong. Construction is progressing smoothly and the project is on track to be complete in time for the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
“Steel has topped out at the fourth floor for the main building and is underway for the one-story mechanical room. Concrete masonry unit walls are complete around the building perimeter on the first floor and have started the second floor lift. The slab on grade is complete, and concrete placement on the second floor deck began July 6. Underground utilities are 75 percent complete. Mechanical/plumbing, electrical, and fire protection subcontractors are mobilized and have been installing inserts, hanger supports, and overhead provisions.”

Crews are performing a new building addition for the boilers and reverse osmosis system.
Sundt’s relationship with the University of Arizona in Tucson was built over nearly 80 years and 57 projects – and counting. Our experience working on university campuses, combined with our industrial construction expertise, is making our newest infrastructure project for the UA a success.
The multi-phased ENR2 Infrastructure project will expand the university’s existing infrastructure to support new research facilities and future campus development. The project’s scope involves improvements to the mechanical, electrical and utility systems; central plant heating and cooling systems; process and research water production; and supporting utilities. Crews are currently renovating the existing central heating and refrigeration plant to house new equipment.

Sundt has recently started construction for the University of Nevada, Reno’s new student residence hall. The Cooper Court Residence Hall addresses the university’s housing needs for an expanding student population with suite-style housing and common lounge areas for 400 students.
The $35 million student housing construction project consists of the demolition of multiple existing buildings and the construction of the 117,000-square-foot, five-story steel and concrete residential hall. The sustainable project has been designed by the architect, Collaborative Design Studio, to achieve LEED Silver certification and complement the rest of the university’s campus architecture with a brick veneer and state-of-the-art building systems.
