This Construction Manager at Risk project included demolition by implosion of Warren Hall, a 13-story administration building originally constructed in 1971, and the construction of its replacement. The scope also included demolition of a two-story bridge that spanned an adjacent roadway and connected the original building to the campus' main library.

 

The new five-story, 67,000-square-foot Student and Faculty Support Building contains faculty offices and other administrative support space. Designed to be an attractive focal point on the busy campus, it features metal ceilings, stainless steel wall panels and terrazzo flooring. The building was designed to include energy-efficient, environmentally friendly features and is expected to earn LEED Gold certification.

 

Sundt also closed the opening in the library created by the bridge removal, adding a window to capture a stunning panoramic view of the San Francisco/Oakland Bay. The new building not only improves working and learning conditions for the faculty, staff and students, but also provides a safer, seismically sound environment.
