A new wing will be added to the main building on campus to replace all outdated bungalows and modular classrooms, labs and support rooms.

The $16.3 million project is the latest San Diego Community College District project funded by Propositions S and N. The project is on track to obtain a LEED silver certification.

The project is expected to be completed in March 2013. Project architect is RJC Architects, construction manager is C.W. Driver and program manager is Gafcon.

And construction has begun on HGA Architects and Engineers’ redesign of Los Angeles City College’s Clausen Hall, a 60,000-square-foot facility for the school’s music department at the 78-year-old Los Angeles campus. HGA’s $13 million modernization and systems upgrade will expand the college’s popular music department with a renovated recital hall and new lecture hall while creating a visually striking entrance to the campus. The project is scheduled for a 2012 completion.

Currently being built by Summit Builders, the renovation includes the expansion of the 190-seat recital hall and the addition of a 150-seat lecture hall, music library and study area, and several classrooms and practice rooms, as well as renovations to the band room, coaching studios and faculty offices.
