The Design-Build Institute of America Western Pacific Region (DBIA-WPR) on September 30 recognized the Cal Poly Pomona Student Housing Replacement Project with a distinction award at the 2021 Design-Build Awards. The purpose of the Design-Build Awards is to acknowledge the most outstanding design-build projects in the Western Pacific Region area by promoting and recognizing the use and efficiency of design-build as a project delivery method.

By placing a brand new first-year student housing and dining commons at its front door, Cal Poly Pomona radically shifts from a commuter school to a new community-centered destination. The university needed a solution that created inclusive environments to inspire, embrace, and engage its students. Phase I Housing and Dining is a $150 million investment in this cause. The project consists of two, 153,000 SF residential eight-story mid-rise towers and 35,000 SF dining commons. The nine-acre project is a vibrant student-focused front door to campus.

The collaborative design-build team consisted of HMC (executive architect and housing design architect), EYRC Architects (dining commons architect), and Sundt Construction.

Congratulations to the entire design-build team: California State Polytechnic University Pomona, Sundt Construction, EYRC Architects, Saiful Bouquet, Psomas, PS2, Inc., AO Reed & Co., Rosendin, Spurlock Landscape Architects.
