San Jose State University Spartan Complex Seismic Upgrade
Location:San Jose, California
Design Consultants:Architect-Clerkin & Clerkin Architecture
Sundt completed a $53 million renovation of the historic Spartan Complex at San José State University (SJSU). Spartan Complex is a group of buildings totaling 176,062 square feet that house the school’s athletic facilities, kinesiology department and natatorium (indoor aquatic center). Sundt's work involved renovations to existing classrooms and offices; upgrades within the gymnasium, natatorium, dance and judo studios, weight and locker rooms, and mechanical spaces; and the addition of a 191-seat auditorium-style classroom, a lobby, and a two-story office wing, which expanded the complex by 5,600 square feet.
The university construction project is part of a statewide effort to bring older buildings in the California State University system up to seismic code.
