Document Description
The College of Alameda Aviation Campus, Aviation Complex Modernization Project (“Project”) at the Peralta Community College District’s (“PCCD”) existing one acre aviation campus encompasses two phases of improvements. The first phase of the Project includes modernization and renovation of 13,243 gross square feet in the existing Building B at the campus. This work involves relocation of the main entry and ground level restrooms and expansion of the composites shop along with an addition of accessible restrooms at the mezzanine level. A two-stop elevator will replace the existing indoor access stairs and the remainder of the mezzanine level will be converted to a combined instructions space for electrical and avionics classes. These improvements replace outdated equipment, increase efficiency, update the facility in conformance with modern instructional methodologies, and improve accessibility in accordance with ADA requirements. Specifically, the fire alarm system, HVAC and electrical systems will be substantially replaced, and classrooms will be equipped with modern teaching technology and new furnishings. The second phase of the Project includes the demolition of Building A, and an adjacent storage shed commonly known as Building C, totaling approximately 11,290 gross square feet. The deteriorated structures will be replaced with a new 11,600 gross square feet Building A. The new building will be constructed adjacent to Building B to avoid disturbing concurrent course offerings and curriculum, optimize the one-acre lot and provide an enhanced site facility presence. The new Building A will include functional space, laboratory, and office space as well as magneto, machine, electric and grinding labs along with storage lab support, parts and tools. Faculty Offices and office storage will also be created. This phase of the Project will also involve site modification required to replace underground infrastructure, including, but not limited to, a new sewage lift station pump, the reconfiguration and expansion of the parking area and dedicated aircraft yard space located immediately adjacent to Building B. The Project will include related utilities work and site work, and other ancillary improvements.
