Cal Poly expands design school with $24 million addition
Construction is under way on a $24 million expansion and renovation to California Polytechnic State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design building. Designed by Austin Veum Robbins Partners, San Diego, the expansion will add 50,000 sf to the facility, providing laboratory, lecture, administrative, and gathering space for the school’s construction management department. The building’s exterior will incorporate glass, concrete, and steel, and will utilize louvered window systems to allow daylight and ventilation throughout the facility. The Building Team includes consulting engineer Magnusson Klemencic, Seattle, and MEP engineer Bechard and Associates, Poway, Calif.
