Document Description
The District i proposes to construct a 42,429-square-foot, two-story Instructional Center (IC) on an undeveloped but disturbed portion of the existing campus. The college has a current student enrollment of 4,600 students and the proposed expansion is anticipated to increase the overall student population by approximately five percent, or approximately 232 students. The IC will be used to expand education opportunities in the areas of allied health services, computer science and graphic arts. Construction will include site clearing, rough and finished grading, trenching, backfill for underground facilities, and concrete for circulation surfaces. The two-story building will match existing campus standard and include steel framing, concrete floors, built up roofing over steel decking, and brick exterior finishes, metal roofing accents, and an elevator which will support future expansion. The project consists of lecture, laboratory, office and other rooms used for educational purposes. The project will match the existing construction and space standards set by the District. Construction is expected to begin in January 2023 and end in April 2024. Construction equipment will include a crane, bulldozer, grader, bob cat, trencher, cement trucks, water trucks, trash trucks, equipment delivery trucks, and company work vehicles
