UC San Diego Argo Hall Renovation located in La Jolla, CA is a renovation of a Type I concrete higher education student housing project. The project is designed by Vasquez Marshall Architects. This CMAR project totals 74,836 square feet throughout one structure with six levels above grade.

It includes 180 student residences. This CMAR project represented a “mission critical” summer project for the University and includes student residences, administrative offices, and student community spaces.

Work covered the installation of a new upgraded wet fire sprinkler system and related fire alarm work as well as new finishes, ADA accessibility compliance, and elevator upgrades. Exterior concrete fins were restored to their original design intent, the entire building was repainted and new interior and exterior railings were provided at all balconies.

Webcor self-performed concrete. This project is LEED Gold®.


Construction is what we do best - it’s no surprise that we live and breathe every aspect of construction.
