Pan-Pacific’s participation in the addition to the architectural
department of Woodbury University included a 19,000-square-foot
structure which houses two floors of studio and critique space in an
open arrangement. Inside the building, exposed interior
construction and plumbing systems serve as teaching tools for
tomorrow’s architects and provided Pan-Pacific with the unique
challenge to install our systems with meticulous attention to design
and detail for both ascetic and educational purposes.
Through the Design-Build process, Pan-Pacific’s Preconstruction team was able to suggest many sustainable ideas to aid in the LEED Certification process. For example, we suggested and installed recycled materials such as cast iron pipe and fittings, dual-flush water closets and ultra-low flush urinals to reduce water usage and storm water mitigation to minimize rain water runoff that goes into the storm drains.
