UC Merced 2020 Project Merced, California, United States

The UC Merced 2020 Project is a 1.2 million gross-square-foot campus expansion and redevelopment project on the UC Merced campus in Merced, California that will nearly double the campus’ physical capacity by 2020. 

The project will be the first in the UC system to use a single private development team for a multi-year, multi-building project of this scope. Plenary Properties Merced (PPM) will not only design and build all of the new facilities as a single, fast-track project, but will also ensure major building systems operate effectively over the 39-year term of the contract. 

To accommodate changing needs over time, the design and construction approaches are flexible and highly adaptable, helping the campus achieve long-term life-cycle and sustainability goals.
