Hensel Phelps team awarded US$211m student housing scheme

A design-build team of Hensel Phelps and Mithun has been appointed by the University of California, San Diego for the third phase of the East Campus student housing program.

The UC San Diego Nuevo East project is a US$211 million, 712,000-square-foot graduate student housing project consisting of over 1,374 beds and related amenity spaces in six buildings.

The graduate student housing at UC San Diego creates a new campus heart on the East Mesa as part of a campus master plan for graduate student housing. All three phases will be completed by the Hensel Phelps and Mithun design-build team, creating a uniform cohesiveness across the entire graduate student housing neighborhood, which is often referred to as ‘One Mesa’.

 “Having the opportunity to design and build three phases for UC San Diego is truly an unprecedented opportunity, and we look forward to providing a project that enhances the experience of the residents and the surrounding community,” said Hensel Phelps senior estimator Michael McKenna.

Mithun design partner Brendan Connolly said: “This is a truly unique opportunity to unify the East Campus community and to create a new vibrant gateway at the campus edge that is connected to new transit resources that are evolving in the region. This project has the ability to serve the graduate students and staff and to create a presence and connection between the university and its surroundings.”

The Nuevo East project will incorporate a social and academic amenity spaces to serve the growing East Campus population. This design also accommodates temporary housing and community program space for medical center patients and families undergoing treatments at UC San Diego.

The opening of the new student housing at Nuevo West is anticipated in 2019, with Nuevo East following in 2020.
