The University of California, Merced, today named Plenary Properties Merced (PPM) the winning bidder for its next major phase of campus development – an unprecedented four-year project that will nearly double the physical capacity of the campus by 2020, allowing it to grow to 10,000 students shortly thereafter.
“We are impressed by the creativity, efficiency and aesthetic qualities evident throughout the winning proposal,” UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland said. “Plenary Properties Merced has produced a compact, environmentally sensitive design that blends beautifully with our existing campus, facilitates our multi-disciplinary teaching and research methods, and provides flexibility for future changes in building usage. Most important, it’s a cost-effective way of building out our campus.”
