Golden Gate University Opens New Student Services Center

Architect Ratcliff Transforms Warehouse into Airy, Dynamic Student Services

Center

EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Ratcliff (http://www.ratcliffarch.com) the architectural, planning and interiors firm, has transformed a shuttered South of Market warehouse structure into a six-story, 50,000-square-foot Student Services Center for Golden Gate University (GGU). As the new "front door" for the downtown university, the former Swallow Printing building at 40 Jessie Street in San Francisco is a robust, inviting addition to the neighborhood. The building's renovation is part of a ten-year facilities master plan for the campus prepared by Ratcliff.

The scope of the project encompasses a complete renovation of the existing structure and the addition of two new floors. All GGU student services offices (registrar, admissions, financial aid, and so on) are included in the building, along with a new bookstore and top-floor conference center. Due to historical interest in this 94-year-old structure, GGU and Ratcliff retained as much of the historical "flavor" of the structure as possible. For instance, all of the existing windows and barn doors were removed, refurbished, and re-installed. In contrast to the original structure, the new addition is a light, modern facility with ribbon windows and aluminum trim.

Ratcliff also incorporates sustainable design initiatives in the 40 Jessie Street complex, including:

-- reuse of much of the existing structure;

-- new energy-efficient building systems;

-- reduction of the "heat island" effect with a highly reflective white

roofing membrane;

-- location in close proximity to mass transit; and

-- inclusion of a large quantity of windows to provide outdoor views and

quality daylight to most occupants.
