California Western School of Law Historic 350 cedar Street Building Renovation
The California Western School of Law 350 Cedar Street building was originally constructed in 1929. It is a four-story cast in place concrete structure with hollow clay tile in-fill. The San Diego Historical Society has designated this building as an historic landmark.
Platt/Whitelaw is providing, in three separate projects, some of them phased, complete A/E services from design through construction support for improvements to this historic structure.
Each floor of the building is being remodeled/renovated, including a lobby with reception desk, two large tiered lecture halls, two large classrooms with video conference capabilities, multiple other classrooms and seminar rooms, administrative offices, library, reception and workroom areas, restrooms, elevators and support spaces. Remodel of the basement included upgrading the computer study room, as well as building a new student lounge and office space for student organizations.
All spaces are designed with state-of-the-art audio/visual and data systems. Green building strategies are incorporated into the design. HVAC systems are provided to serve the remodeled spaces.
Improvements made to the building exterior include new signage, screening of existing equipment, and new exterior colors complementing the school campus’ adjacent buildings.
