The scope of this project as mandated by UCI was to design/build the renovation of nine (9) Unit 1 buildings in the Mesa Court Housing Complex.
Slater Builders partnered with Carrier Johnson to design, remodel, and upgrade the restrooms, including a complete waterproofing system on floors and walls, new tile, cubbies, fixtures and lighting, new roof system, upgrades to the plumbing, fire suppression, electrical and fire alarm systems, new drywall ceilings and walls in the bedrooms, restrooms and corridors, exit lighting, exterior lighting, paint and floor covering.
Some of the enhancements included counter sensors on the restroom doors to control lighting, a combination single unit water bottle filling station in each building, and skylights in the 2nd floor bathrooms. Behind each Unit 1 kitchen on the second floor, the non-utilized storage closet was relocated turning single occupancy rooms into double occupancy units which created space for nine additional beds.
