University of California, San Diego North Campus Housing
La Jolla, California
North Campus Housing designed by Carrier Johnson was one of the largest projects on the UCSD Campus. The 14 story high rise tower takes advantage of the incredible ocean views La Jolla has to offer. Once completed, the project was awarded the “2009 Build San Diego Award” from the Associated General Contractors – San Diego Chapter.
All 146 of the two, three, and four bedroom apartment-style units were constructed to achieve LEED Silver energy efficiency standards. The North Campus housing project was also constructed with green building materials, including steel framing rather than wood. Energy efficient boilers and glazing as well as “green” flooring, cabinetry and paint were installed. The parking lot that previously sat on the site was ground up and used in the new foundations.
MTGL provided materials and soils testing during construction in addition to special inspection services.
