Document Description
Note: Refer to prior SCH# 2014042088 The proposed project would include two primary components. The first component would consist of demolition of Buildings M and Mt. Building M has an area of 11,155 gross square feet (gsf)1 and Building Mt is 3,840 gsf. The second component would then consist of construction of a new 60,605-gsf Science Building, which would include 38,001 assignable square feet (asf)2 comprised of 936 asf of lecture space, 27,696 asf of laboratory space, 3,352 asf of office space, 1,497 asf of library space, and 4,520 asf of other instruction support spaces. The proposed project would be designed to exceed the requirements stipulated by the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6 California Code of Regulations [CCR]) by 15 percent, consistent with the California Community Colleges Board of Governors’ (Board of Governors) Energy and Sustainability Policy. Upon completion of the new Science Building, Sewell Hall (the current science building) would be taken offline and repurposed in Sierra College’s (the College) Capital Outlay Plan in 2027-28.
