UC Santa Cruz, Student Union, Seismic Corrections

Renovated and seismically retrofitted two wood pole buildings that provide flexible student lounge and meeting space as well as student organization offices on campus. Each building is situated on a slope surround by redwood trees and provides pleasant outdoor decks for student interaction and a new large deck for more formal gatherings.  The buildings house student run and student support groups including, Student Organization Advising & Resources, the Student Union Assembly, Engaging Education (e2 program), the Bike Co-Op, and five student ethnic organizations. Degenkolb’s retrofit schemes improve the seismic performance of the buildings to a Good rating.
