Remodel and expansion of one of the first and original buildings constructed on the UC Irvine Campus. The project consisted of an extensive interior remodel including a new eye care consultation room with expanded offices, new dental procedure rooms with new x-ray and med gas infrastructure. DLS Builders also installed new general exam rooms with leading edge technology for the expanding UCI student population. This was a phased project and was completely constructed while full operation of the Student Health Center commenced daily. During each phase of the project DLS Builders also made structural seismic retrofits to the existing building.
One of the phases of work was the ground up construction of a 2800sf addition to the existing building. The most challenging aspect of the project was removing and reusing existing decorative cast concrete wall panels with glazing to the face of the new exterior portion of the expansion. DLS Builders relocated the panels to flawless perfection making the addition look like it was apart of the original building! Inside the new addition houses a brand new Pharmacy, Insurance consultation offices, restrooms, and conference room.
