Los Angeles-based Bernards commenced construction on a new residence and dining hall at the University of La Verne in La Verne, CA. The project is a design-build, in collaboration with Los Angeles-based Steinberg Architects.
The new 114,970-square-foot residence building will include 396 beds, a dining hall, lounge and study spaces, and outdoor patios. The ground floor will feature an 18,700-square-foot dining hall, President’s dining room, and large social and recreation lounge. The residence floors feature living clusters focused on community integration and learning.
Bernards’ Andy Buerk notes the project is the sixth student residence to be built by his company. Bernards also recently built a student housing building at California State University, Bakersfield, and it is currently constructing a new performing arts center, as well as new health, fitness, dance and physical education building at Santa Monica College.
