The LA Deal Sheet
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona has a new student services building with a futuristic design and innovative features.
C.W. Driver Cos. has completed a three-story, two-building structure totaling 138,400 SF.
The two buildings are covered under an undulating roof that uses natural solar power to regulate the buildings' temperature and energy efficiency, C.W. Driver officials said.
“Cal Poly Pomona’s new student services building's incomparable aesthetic and energy efficient design make it a perfect fit for an institution nationally recognized for its unique approach to learning and advancements in engineering,” C.W. Driver Senior Project Manager Jeff Marshall said.
Designed by CO Architects and inspired by Pomona’s surrounding hills and mountains, the unique curved steel and concrete roof collects, stores and distributes solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and rejects solar heat in the summer.
Additionally, the roof shades the exterior glass windows, reducing glare and maximizing natural daylight.
