Cal Poly Pomona Student Services Building recently topped out with the last of 17 shotcrete applications on the roof. The two low-rise structures are four and three levels above grade totaling 138,400gsf. The buildings will house offices for the university’s administrative staff, multi-purpose meeting and test-taking spaces, financial support, cashier, finance, registration and information technology. The most unique aspect of the project is the ‘wavy’ roof which undulates with large perforated overhangs covering both buildings. The roof is designed to mimic the hills which surround the campus and reduce thermal loads and glare while maximizing daylight into the structure. Working with general contractor CW Driver, CO Architects, and John A. Martin & Associates Structural Engineers, the building is seeking a LEED Silver Certification and is expected to open during the Fall of 2018.
With the rat slab complete, the protection slab, waterproofing and the mat foundation will follow shortly at the 225 California commercial building in Burlingame, CA. The building has a structural concrete frame and features 3 levels of below grade parking with 130 stalls and 5 levels of retail and commercial space above. Working with general contractor Lusardi Construction and designers MBH Architects and ZFA Structural Engineers, Largo expects to be topped out during the summer of 2017.
