UC Riverside, Student Success Center
The new Student Success Center at UCR is a 3-story, 62,000 GSF building comprised of general assignment classrooms for modern teaching and technology, multi-purpose student life spaces, and dining services. The building is intended to serve as a new focal point to the campus. The project is designed to be carbon-neutral ready and is pursuing LEED Gold Certification.
The building uses high-efficiency light fixtures and lighting controls as well as a heat recovery chiller to generate hot water for the facility and back-feed chilled water to the campus loop, among other energy efficiency strategies. In addition to cutting edge design, the system includes a state-of-the-art sequence of operations and metering to allow the University to control and monitor the building systems.
