Grad Student Village
Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology design services for this cold-formed steel-framed graduate village consisting of 10- and 11-story towers located on a central podium. Our team’s design included energy-conscious and low-carbon measures such as PV infrastructure, air source VRF cooling and fossil fuel-free heating, exhaust air energy recovery, and condensate collection & storage for irrigation reuse.
The residences are studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units with complete kitchens and laundry space. The 79,000-square-foot podium includes a café and bookstore, grocery store, community spaces, underground parking, and an occupied terrace featuring a firepit and grill.
