"Rimac Annex, built by Bauer and Wiley Architects, provides additional recreational facilities including lounges, meeting areas and retail space to the existing three-story building on the hilltop overlooking Torrey Pines Cliffs. Natural ventilation circulates throughout the building and wooden-paneled screens control solar heat gain in an effort to reign in excessive energy usage. Since its completion in 2009, the annex has served as the social hub for students and faculty at the north end of campus."
The RIMAC Arena is a multi-use facility capable of accommodating a wide variety of activities ranging from large spectator events including ceremonies and concerts to athletic competitions and tournaments. The Annex completes aspects of the original RIMAC design concept and introduces new services and facilities to the campus. The Softball Field improvements will serve to provide improved player and spectator accommodations appropriate to our current level of competition.
The joint projects represent a partnership between the Sports Facilities and Athletics Departments. The facilities will be located adjacent to RIMAC in an area that incorporates portions of the sloped landscaped area between Ridgewalk and the North Campus Recreation Area (RIMAC Field).
