UCLA Housing Administration
Faculty Levering Housing Renovation
Los Angeles, California
Project Status: Completed
This eight story wood framed seventy-two unit structure is situated over a multi-level cast-in-place subterranean parking garage totaling 72,000 square feet and 33,000 square feet respectfully. The scope of the renovation program involved investigation of the sourcing and causation of water intrusion into the structure in addition to remediating degradation of the wood frame and steel moment frame structural system. In addition, the building’s exterior was changed to express a modernist design ethic. Concurrently the unit interiors and common areas were addressed to incorporate a new palette of materials appropriate to the new direction of the building design. The structure’s building systems, mechanical, plumbing and electrical, were also repaired and/or upgraded selectively as was required.
