Zura Hall Housing Refresh

Zura Hall Housing Refresh 

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed:
San Diego State University (SDSU) utilized a modified version of true design-build titled, ‘collaborative design-build.’ It was set up to allow full collaboration amongst the design-builder and SDSU throughout design and construction; thereby, giving SDSU much more input for the outcome of the project, than through a traditional design-build process.

Summary:
Balfour Beatty Construction, HMC Architects, Mahlum Architects and San Diego State University (SDSU) partnered together under California State University’s new collaborative design-build process to design and build this highly successful project that finished on time and on budget in Fall 2015. This complete top to bottom renovation and reinvention of the 592 bed freshmen residence hall is acclaimed by senior leadership at SDSU to be the most successful project ever built on campus.
