Document Description
Merced Community College District is proposing to remodel the Merced College Vocational Building. The project area, including construction staging, would be approximately one acre of the existing Merced College campus, located at the northeast corner of M Street and West Yosemite Avenue in the City of Merced. Construction would involve safety improvements such as fire alarms and sprinklers; modification of restrooms and drinking fountains for accessibility; replacement of roof, mansard tile fascia, HVAC, doors, vinyl flooring, and lighting; exterior and interior paint; power and low voltage system upgrades; and removal of toxic substances. There are no ground-disturbing activities within the scope of work. The project would be constructed over an 18-month period. Construction would occur Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in order to minimize noise impacts in the project area.
