The UC-Davis Shasta 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 have double and triple room arrangements and includes bathrooms. The three buildings 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.

DPR partnered with Digital Building Components on this project to deliver non-combustible, light gauge cold-formed, load-bearing structures. The use of digital fabrication transformed 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.
