San Diego Tool Day at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) will delve into the newly completed, award-winning Student Academic Services Facility (SASF) designed by Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA. 

"The new Student Services Center anchors the heart of the university center neighborhood and defines and connects three different campus open spaces. It also enhances pedestrian circulation through a series of covered arcades and open porticos. The façade of the building is comprised of a curtain wall system with sun screens, allowing the building users flexibility in relation to views and sun protection."

—Rob Wellington Quigley

This all-day workshop provides a setting in which participants learn to use handheld instruments, conduct a building performance case study through structured methodology, develop hypothesis and investigation strategy formulation, are allowed behind-the-scenes building investigations, and make team presentations of study results to the workshop participants. Participants gain understanding of objective and subjective procedures for performing post-occupancy evaluations of building performance. 

The SASF is located on Meyers Drive off Gilman Drive in the center of campus. See detail map or UCSD campus map website:
