San Diego State University
San Diego, CA

The Design-Build team of Clark Construction and Safdie-Rabines Architects are modernizing the KPBS Building located within the San Diego State University campus. The two-story renovation and expansion envisions an innovative broadcasting center that responds to a global environment of rapidly changing news and information.

This project enriches KPBS’s existing facilities by creating continuity within the news agency and upgrading its technology infrastructure. The renovation accommodates an increased seating capacity, new offices, modern broadcasting spaces, a new community engagement room, and a total renovation of its lobby.

Located at the gateway to campus, the renovation reflects KPBS’s growth plans at San Diego State University.  A new community engagement room allows for flexible indoor / outdoor space for both small meetings and large events, a donor walk honors the significant role of ensuring public access to high-quality news and information, and an enlarged newsroom provides much needed space for future expansion.
