A historical 43,350 sq. ft. building dating to 1931, Icon West was enlisted to complete a seismic renovation, correct structural deficiencies, and to upgrade the building to DSA level 3.
One of the campuses most iconic and historical buildings, UCLA’s desire to maintain its historical significance led them to entrust Icon West with the modernization of the building.
The Renovated building will include a change in occupancy to academic and administrative offices and support space, an open computing laboratory, scholarly activity space, special collections and building support space. Consisting of three stories and a basement, the building will be upgraded seismically from “poor” to “good” (DSA Level 3). The renovations will correct structural and non-structural seismic deficiencies; upgrade and replace obsolete mechanical, electrical, plumbing and the fire and life-safety systems; correct accessibility ode deficiencies and make repairs to the building shell and site.
