Sundt was hired to develop a facilities management BIM Model for the project, which is likely a first within the CSU system.


Sundt's leadership in the use of technology including Bluebeam resulted in new standards for the University staff.


The project was originally contemplated as a remodel of an existing building. Sundt was able to show the owner a path to a completely new building for basically the same budget.

Students at San Diego State University  have more exceptional housing, retail and restaurant offerings to choose from. The 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.

Sustainability was also emphasized at South Campus Plaza. The. nearly 350,000-square foot design includes Cal-Green Tier 2, innovative and sustainable design with the use of recycled and renewable building materials with energy-efficient windows and lighting controls that enhance daylighting and shut off when rooms are not occupied .
