Construction Updates
UC San Diego campus

The university acknowledges and is sensitive to the fact that the work involved in achieving the Hillcrest campus redevelopment may be disruptive at times.

During construction, every effort will be made to reduce impacts to the campus and community, including sequencing of work and investments made to mitigate disruption.

Timely Alerts

Sustainability is a critical component of all UC San Diego planning and development efforts as put forth by both the University's Climate Action Plan and University of California’s Sustainable Practices Policy. A complete campus redevelopment provides opportunities to align the physical campus with UC San Diego’s broader sustainability goals.

The outpatient pavilion is designed to achieve U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification and outperform the Energy efficiency performance target (EUI). The parking structure, not eligible for LEED™ certification, will strive for a Silver certification through the PARKSMART program. In addition, UC San Diego would purchase all the project’s electricity needs through the UC Direct Access Program, which will be 100% renewable and have zero carbon emissions associated starting in 2025.

Specific project sustainability features include:

  • Enhanced cool roofs and duct insulation
  • High-efficiency lighting and water heating
  • Low-water, drought tolerant plants in landscaping
  • Weather-based irrigation control systems combined with drip irrigation
  • Water-efficient showerheads, toilets and faucets
  • Public charging stations for electric vehicles
  • New pedestrian and bicycle facilities including bicycle lockers and shower facilities
