RJC Architects of San Diego and Fallbrook-based Straub Construction Co. were awarded the $24.8 million design/build construction contract for repair and renovation of Root and Spanagel Halls at the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey.
The project will consist mostly of replacing mechanical systems, upgrading electrical systems, refurbishing corridors, repairing doors and replacing flooring and sprinklers.
The halls house classrooms, faculty offices, satellite conference centers and broadcast studios for distance learning. Because those rooms will have to remain fully occupied and operational during the renovation, work on the project will need to be done between 3:30 p.m. and 6 a.m.
The Root and Spanagel Halls, designed in 1954 by Walter Netsch with Skidmore Owings and Merrill, are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
