Architects & Engineers



About Our Services


In the past ten years, the University of California, Riverside, has nearly doubled in enrollment and has increased its portfolio of facilities and infrastructure to support a growing campus commensurately. The current ten-year plan projects (both state-funded and non-state funded) totaling more than $1.3B. The Office of Design & Construction is committed to the strategic investment that is being made in enhancing UCR’s environment and capacity for learning and discovery, both through new construction and creative renovation of existing campus buildings and infrastructure. We are also committed to a sustainable campus at every level, including facilities, operations, student projects, curriculum and research. As we look to the eventual build-out of undeveloped land on the West Campus, we are committed to be the good stewards of the expansion opportunity of our professional and graduate schools including the School of Medicine.

The mission of the Office of Design & Construction is equally divided between the responsibilities for the design of the campus and the management of construction in a way the respects the overall vision of the Physical Design Framework presented to The Regents. The fulfillment of that vision incorporates a campus that embodies a cohesive environment that is distinctly UCR.

Under the direction of Associate Vice Chancellor/Campus Architect Robert Gayle, AIA, the Office of Architects and Engineers is responsible for Project Management, Finance Administration, Contracts Administration, design and construction, repairs and Quality Assurance and Code Compliance on construction projects for the UC Riverside campus. A&E has professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, quality assurance and inspection services, design, environmental planning, construction contracts and finance. Project Managers oversee schematic design, design development, construction drawings and construction of capital projects through construction delivery and post-occupancy assessment. We work as a project team with Capital & Physical Planning, Finance, Accounting, project stakeholders, campus representatives, design professionals, engineers, special consultants and construction contractors to deliver successful scope, scheduling and budget within the context of each capital project.
