Project OverviewMaximino Martinez Commons TEECOM

As part of the UC Berkeley 2020 Long Range Development Plan, UC Berkeley constructed a new six-story residential building located across from the historic Anna Head School. The residential complex, known as Maximino Martinez Commons, is conveniently located two blocks from the main campus. The facility provides undergraduate residential apartments that incorporate suites, student collaborations rooms, lounge areas, and student computer laboratory spaces.

Benefit to the Client

TEECOM made design recommendations for the benefit of UC Berkeley and helped solve technological problems throughout the course of the project. The original architectural design included six telecom rooms, which would have eliminated important space for student-designated areas. TEECOM effectively designed a new system with just two telecom rooms, giving back critical space for student activities, as well as saving UC Berkeley money on both cost of buildout and long-term cost for telecom equipment in the future, resulting in major cost savings.
