University of California, Irvine - Mesa Court Student Housing Expansion

University of California, Irvine - Mesa Court Student Housing Expansion
Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed:
UC-Irvine has been an industry leading campus in the design-build delivery method for decades. Likewise, Hensel Phelps has found great success in design-build for a wide variety of clients and diverse building functions. Design-build is UC-Irvine’s preferred delivery method due to its unique ability to foster creativity in design, while maintaining project budgets and schedule. Hensel Phelps partnered with Mithun (Architect) and UC-Irvine Design & Construction Services to provide an attractive landmark facility with a sustainable design while meeting the needs and expectations of the UC-Irvine Housing Department, all while staying on schedule and within budget.

Summary:
Completion of Mesa Court Towers in August 2016 aligned with celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the UCI campus. This high-performance living and learning community has quickly become a beloved heart of the Mesa Court neighborhood. The 250,000-square-foot development is an attractive, long-term housing solution for the University and draws students who hadn’t or couldn’t previously consider on-campus housing.
