This AIA and Sustainable award winning 83,000 SF complex houses the UC Davis Conference Center and Maurice J. Gallagher Jr. Hall, home of the UC Davis Graduate School of Management (GSM). The GSM offices comprise three stories and the two-story conference center includes a restaurant, office space, meeting rooms, and a one-story ballroom. It also includes a geothermal system.
The facility also features state-of-the-art classrooms equipped with advanced technology systems for a bright, open and interactive learning environment. It also includes a modern student affairs and career services center, an outdoor garden, and a courtyard space for special events and networking.
Gallagher Hall’s eco-friendly construction is expected to LEED Platinum certification, making it the first business school building in California to do so. Meanwhile, the adjoining Conference Center comprises the University Relations Department, ballroom, conference rooms and space for a restaurant.
Our team developed a geothermal design to address the heating and cooling needs of the buildings as they were remote from the main campus utilities. Displacement ventilation, coupled with radiant floors served the classrooms, offices and conference spaces in addition to the circulation spaces. Natural ventilation via operable windows was also implemented.
