In 2010 UCLA selected Gafcon to provide construction management services for the UCLA Weyburn Terrace Graduate Student Housing project, designed to create a vibrant urban center to serve its residents and the adjacent housing complexes. The 275,000 sf project is comprised of student housing, student support areas, meeting and reception rooms, and administrative offices. Weyburn Terrace received LEED Gold Certification for its many sustainable elements used throughout.
Gafcon’s team collaborated closely with the District’s Facilities Department, architects and contractor to complete construction in time for the fall 2012 semester. To ensure the project remained on schedule, Gafcon designed an online document management and information controls system used to share documents and expedite decision making. Gafcon provided preconstruction, contract management, communications and outreach, constructability review, scheduling, cost estimating, and LEED certification support.
The Weyburn Terrace Graduate Student Housing project is just one of three student housing projects Gafcon has completed for UCLA.
