UC Santa Cruz, Crown College Residence Hall

Designed the $55 million renovation of eight wood framed residence halls at Crown College, built in 1967, and the Leonardo Apartments, built in 1968. The project will add 22 bed spaces by integrating live-in staff units in each residence hall for student use, converting apartments to use by the live-in staff, address deferred maintenance as well as new accessibility requirements and seismic retrofit. Construction began in June 2017 with a phased approach over three years during which one residence hall building at a time will be offline and unoccupied while the renovations are completed.
