Tim Stevens leads SCB San Francisco’s Campus Environments practice. In the role of principal designer, he seeks to balance campus contextual responsibilities with responsive and timeless solutions relevant to contemporary demands. In the role of program expert, he leverages the experience of a career devoted to the issues of enhancing student life and learning environment outcomes. In the role of practitioner, Tim is involved at the forefront of cutting edge procurement strategies, including advising UC Merced on the programming and planning for their ambitious 2020 Project, the largest Public Private Partnership project on the West Coast; as well as CSU’s inaugural “Collaborative Design-Build” projects at SJSU, Sac State, and Channel Islands.
Tim’s work is reflective of the issues facing colleges and universities–designing for the integration of adaptive technology, inherent flexibility and mixing of programmatic uses; diversities of funding and delivery models; and environmental sustainability. He has designed buildings, programmed facilities, and planned environments for Arizona State University; the University of California System–Berkeley, Davis, Merced, Santa Cruz, San Diego, and Riverside campuses; the California State University System–Cal Poly Pomona, Channel Islands, Sacramento State, San Bernardino, San Francisco State, and San Jose State campuses; Oregon State University; Santa Clara University; and the University of Arizona, among others.
Tim has designed more than 20,000 beds of student housing communities, from first year residence hall environments to graduate student apartments. He designed the nation’s first LEED Platinum Certified Student Recreation Center, located at the University of Arizona. His recent work includes professional schools, like Charney Hall, Santa Clara University’s new Law School facility, and a Classroom and Academic Office Building for UC Merced.
As joint chair of SCB’s Campus Environments Research & Development Committee, Tim builds knowledge leadership within SCB. He has presented to the Society for Campus and University Planning (SCUP), the Design Build Institute, and the CSU Facilities Conference. Prior to joining SCB, Tim was a Design Principal with Sasaki Associates. He holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Texas A&M University and is a member of the AIA, USGBC, and SCUP.
