Innovation and design flourish in campus construction projects
Construction and expansion projects abound these days at Sacramento State – tangible examples of the University’s evolution from functional educational outpost to something far more colorful, dynamic, and important to the life of the Sacramento region.
Riverview Hall, new home to 416 first- and second-year students, is offering the apartment-like amenities expected in modern campus residences. Meanwhile, a new six-story, 529,000-square-foot parking structure is paying homage to Sac State’s urban forest with its 1,722 leaf-like aluminum “fins.” A major renovation and expansion of the University Union is heading toward completion in December. And the Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex, now under construction, will transform science at the University with a rooftop observatory, a planetarium, and 30 cutting-edge laboratories.
The projects are among Sac State’s top innovations showcased in the spring edition of Sac State Magazine, now available online.
