University of California, Davis | Emerson Hall

University of California, Davis | Emerson Hall | Davis, CA

The UC-Davis Emerson Hall is a design-build project with HKS, Inc. that includes a new, three building, ground-up student housing complex with a bed count between 749 to 809 beds. The bedrooms will have double and triple room arrangements and will include bathrooms. The three buildings will also include common rooms, residence assistant apartments, lounges, recreation rooms, an advising center, community space, a community kitchen, music room, maintenance shops and laundry facilities.

Prefab and Sustainability

DPR has also partnered with Digital Building Components on this project to deliver non-combustible, light gauge cold-formed, load-bearing structures. The use of digital fabrication will transform the buildings from Type V/III wood-framed construction to a Type II steel-framed building. This allows the three buildings to be connected, improving egress and allowing social balconies between the buildings.

The project is required to be LEED Silver, but is targeting LEED Gold.
