The renovation and expansion centralizes various student organizations and services; and features a food court, coffee house, print shop and computer center. The project includes a new wing on the site of the old cafeteria and an earthquake retrofit and renovation of the existing structure - a 144,000-sf building completed in 1969. An existing amphitheater was converted into an indoor theater and lecture hall. Civil engineering services included the development of construction documents for site dimensioning and layout, grading, storm drainage, utility relocation, new utility connections to the proposed building and erosion control.
