The Big Shift

To decrease our campus’s reliance on natural gas and move our university closer to becoming carbon neutral by 2025, UC Davis is converting our building heating system from one that utilizes steam heat generated by natural gas, to a heating system that uses hot water generated by electricity – a renewable resource.

Briggs Hall Roof and Electrical Renovations

Briggs Hall, home to dozens of research groups and labs, opened in 1971 – almost 50 years ago – to accommodate major increases in students and faculty studying and researching the biological sciences. Today the roof and electrical systems need major renovations to protect critical research and academic equipment.

Building Sustainably

April 30, 2020
For the past three years, University of California Davis has been ranked the most sustainable university in the country by GreenMetric World University Rankings. Design and Construction Management plays an important role in building and maintaining a sustainable university with every project it undertakes.

Electrical Substation Transformer Addition

To improve electrical power reliability, provide capacity for growth, allow for operational flexibility and minimize the impact of major power outages, our campus is adding a new transformer to the electrical substation.

La Rue Bridge

To safely accommodate the increasing number of cars, bikes and pedestrians going to and from the campus’s expanding Gateway District, this project — majority-funded by the Federal Highway Administration — replaces a 32-foot-wide, almost- 70-year-old bridge with a seismically safe 52-foot-wide span that includes standard sidewalks and bike lanes.
