The new UC Davis Student Community Center is home to campus student groups, counselors, offices, and meeting space. The site design organizes circulation at the campus core and provides outdoor areas for social gathering and personal introspection. These areas are located amidst existing trees and heritage plantings, which were meticulously protected and supplemented with climate appropriate planting including native grass meadows in lieu of turf.
As part of site-related LEED credit analysis for the project, The HLA Group worked with UC Davis Design and Construction Management and the Planning and Landscape Architecture Divisions to develop a comprehensive approach to landscape planting, irrigation, and stormwater management.
