Student Union Expansion Feasibility Study

In early 2012, the Associated Students, Inc. of California State University, Fullerton contracted B&D to complete an expansion feasibility study of the Titan Student Union. We were taked with providing qualitative and quantitative research to determine how best to improve the TSU to meet current and future needs of the CSU Fullerton community. We conducted a strategic asset value analysis, existing conditions assessment, focus groups, demand analysis, project concept development, financial analysis, and campus-wide survey to quantify activity preferences and usage patterns. We determined that food service and lounge space represented the most important spaces to students due to the TSU’s limited seating. Overall, we recommended a 40,000 gross square foot expansion to the TSU that included expanding food service and multicultural program elements. We also recommended situating the proposed expansion along the South and East facades of the building to capitalize on existing traffic patterns, connect with the neighboring Bookstore building, and establish a new focal point and entry for the building.
