HIGHER ED: UC Merced Parcade Office TI | Merced, CA | Built
As part of U.C. Merced’s commitment to revitalize downtown Merced, PHA was engaged to study and recommend solutions for locating administrative space in vacant, city-owned buildings downtown. The first of several tenant improvements, the Parcade will house both administrative function and a small business incubator for U.C. Merced graduate students. The existing 6,100 s.f. space is a dark, outdated maze of offices and low ceilings. PHA has transformed the space into a light, modern workspace that meets U.C. Merced’s high standards for their staff and students, including high technology, meeting spaces w/ video conference capabilities, open office, private offices and shared spaces to maximize efficiency.
