UCSD North Campus Student Housing

  • Design-Build Subcontractor
  • 8 buildings delivered concurrently
  • 14-story residential tower
  • Architectural walls​

The Project:

T.B. Penick self-performed all Architectural Cast-In-Place structural concrete work on this design-build student housing project. The project consists of eight (8) new multi-story buildings located at the University of California San Diego, including a fourteen-story cast in place dormitory.


Substantial savings were realized in both schedule and cost by continually refining the project schedule and design, while still providing the client with a beautiful product that exceeded their expectations. The interior and exterior concrete walls are permanently exposed to view and are “as is”. No painting or other treatments are allowed, making this one of the most unique buildings of its type in San Diego.
