Capital projects update
Cedar Hall Renovation
The Cedar Hall Renovation Project continues to progress on schedule and is slated for a spring 2013 completion. This is a major renovation that includes new walls, ceilings, floor coverings and windows, along with new mechanical, electrical, and information technology systems.
Moving the facilities operation out of the building allowed for all the existing programs and offices to be right-sized to meet current standards. There will be more open spaces for students to gather and new paths for all entrances will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Construction is slated to be completed spring 2013 followed by the installation of equipment and furnishings. Cedar Hall occupants will move back into the newly renovated facility in time for fall quarter 2013.
Trades Replacement Project
In June of 2012 the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges informed the College that funding for the Trades Replacement Project would be reinstated after it was suspended in 2010. The design staff is working with Trades faculty and staff to restart the design process.
The current schedule calls for construction to commence on the Lea Hill Park site Sept. 2013 with the facility fully operational by fall quarter, 2015.
Student Life project
The Lindbloom Student Center currently houses Student Life, Student Services, and Instructional programs. The 41 year-old building is beyond life cycle, overcrowded, and poorly configured to meet growing program needs.
The state does not provide funding for Student Life facilities so in May, 2007 the students voted to approve a self-imposed fee to pay for a new Student Life building.
A design team comprised of student leaders, college staff, and design consultants are in the process of creating a design for the new facility.
Programs and spaces moving into the new Student Life building include Student Life, Athletics, the Paper Tree bookstore, food service, the main dining hall, and conference rooms. The new facility will also include a new fitness center, which does not replace the existing center. All student service functions will remain in LC until the college is able to obtain state funding for a new student services building.
Construction will begin in fall 2013 on the Humanities, Social Science Business Industries site after Cedar Hall programs currently housed in the Humanities complex, move back to their newly renovated facility. Construction is scheduled to be completed late spring 2015, and the new building fully operational by fall quarter, 2015.For the safety of the students and staff please observe the orange trail fences as well as the parking cones.
