Projects in Design

A Quad:

A9: Bid and award should be complete by mid March 2006 with construction scheduled for completion by beginning of fall quarter 2006.

A8: is in the final design phase with bid and award scheduled for April through end May 2006. Construction is scheduled for summer through October 2006.

Campus Center: The construction drawings are complete and are under DSA review. Construction is expected to start in late summer 2006 and run through summer 2007. Plans include an expanded dining service area as well as mechanical upgrades. The project budget is $5.9 million and primarily funded by the student body through the Campus Center Use Fee. During the renovation of the campus center, a reduced level of food services and cafeteria seating will be available in the upper level of the old bookstore.

Campus Entries: The goal of the project is to improve traffic flow on and off campus as well as on-campus circulation. The final Environmental Impact Report (EIR), incorporating the proposed removal of the east cottage, is complete and the final stage of the public review will take place at the March 6, 2006 Board meeting. Other design features included in this project are signage, landscaping, a new service roadway, new city sidewalks, and enhanced pedestrian lighting. Currently, the bid and award phase will commence in March 2006. This is a $2.1 million project.

Campus Site Lighting: We are currently in the design phase of this project. Bid and award is scheduled for April through June 2006. Work should take place through summer 2006. The project budget is $660,000.

Forum: Construction drawings are complete. DSA review and approval should be finalized by summer 2006. Renovations will follow the completion of the Administration building remodel. This is a $1.9 million project.

Performance Hall: The completion of the design phase is due to be finalized by fall 2006. Procurement is scheduled for early 2007. Construction of this new building is currently scheduled for summer 2007 through summer 2008. As this project is located on the present site of the Mod Quad, the demobilization of the MQ buildings will be the first step of the construction process. Proposition 55 which passed in 2004 will augment the Measure E dollars allocated for this project. There have also been external fund raising efforts to assist with the funding of this project. The current budget is $12.5 million.

Planetarium: Procurement is underway with renovations anticipated to take place spring through end of fall quarter 2006. The $1 million Star projector will be installed in fall quarter. This is a $1.2 million project (excluding the Star projector).
