UCSC Merrill College


Ifland Engineers designed significant site improvements associated with the major renovation of the Merrill Residence Halls Capital Renewal Project at UC Santa Cruz.  In concert with major modifications to four student dormitories and a new three-story Plaza Building to replace a restaurant and student activities center, IEI provided grading and drainage design, sewer and water services, accessibility design and coordination of electrical and communications routing through the work zone.  Coordination with numerous campus departments, architect, landscape architect, surveyor and telecom consultant was required.  The project improved access for the disabled and made community spaces more functional.  It consisted of two phases and resulted in a much more open and welcoming campus for Merrill students and visitors, providing a new "sense of place" that had been previously lacking.  The project has since been expanded to include utility and accessibility improvements at the Merrill Cultural Center.
