Tutor-Saliba awarded USC Student Campus Center
Los Angeles, CA (June 1, 2008) Tutor-Saliba Corporation has been awarded the $102 million, 151,000 sq ft USC Student Campus Center, with an official Notice to Proceed on May 17, 2008. The new Campus Center will house a number of university centers, including the new Admission Center and the Epstein Family Alumni Center. There will also be student offices and work space, collaborative project and group study areas, multi-purpose areas for events and gatherings, meeting and board rooms for student organizations, study lounges, wide-ranging dining options, including cafés, a full-service restaurant, and a convenience store for a quick snack, technology resources, and game and entertainment areas.
The Campus Center is being built on the current site of the Commons and the Topping Student Center and area immediately north, integrating with the existing Student Union facility and Bookstore and providing a coherent design scheme for both structures.
Architecturally, the Student Campus Center facility provides a dramatic and elegant space consistent with USC's reputation as a world-class university of the 21st century. At the heart of the Campus Center will be a grand outdoor plaza, a visually stunning gathering and dining area that will become the heartbeat of life on USC'S campus. The upper levels of the Campus Center will include open walkways facing the courtyard in order to bring about more connection throughout the facility.
Construction of the Campus Center is a significant challenge. Traffic patterns for students, faculty, and services will be maintained, so that minimal disruption will occur. In addition, non-construction times have been established to allow for final exams and other activities so that the academics remain the priority of the campus.
