Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABBAE) was retained by Stanford University to provide building envelope consulting services for the new Escondido Village Graduate Residences, located in Stanford, California.

The Escondido Village Graduate Residences consist of four multi-story residential buildings featuring 2,434 beds for Stanford graduate students. The project also includes a two-story pavilion with basement loading and a stand-alone three-story parking garage (GSF). KSH is the Architect of Record.

ABBAE was retained by Stanford to provide design assist and third-party peer review services and construction phase consulting services. We assisted with selection of the building envelope systems, hosted design workshops for the project team, and provide third-party peer reviews of KSH’s details, and provided technical specifications.

During construction, our team is assisting with review of submittals and contractor shop drawings, attending pre-construction meetings, assisting KSH with providing responses to Requests for Information (RFI) related to the building envelope, and conducting site observation visits to confirm contractor performance. Construction is anticipated to be completed in 2020-2021.
