Formwork Used





Project Overview

UCLA developed an ambitious plan to expand student housing to accommodate a 7% projected increase in students annually. With limited land and resources, a high-density living model was chosen to replace buildings at three sites on their West Los Angeles Campus. PCL Construction was selected as the General Contractor to oversee projects at all three sites.
