Center for Independent Living (TIL): The Center for Independent Living project is complete. AP is working with the Contractor to complete the project closeout documentation and all loose ends related to construction. TIL staff have taken occupancy of the buildings and students are currently living in the dorm units.

Dorm Modernization: The Dorm Modernization Project was approved at the August 14, 2013 Board Meeting. The College received 7 bids, with the lowest responsible bidder being Black/Hall Construction from Taft. Pending Board approval of the lowest bidder, construction is estimated to start towards the middle of September and is scheduled to complete towards the beginning of fourth quarter 2014.


Student Center: Construction documents are in process. Meetings are being held with committee members for plan development. Internally, AP Architects is coordinating design between all project consultants. The current anticipated construction start date is end of fourth quarter 2014 pending completion of the Dorm project.


STEM Tech Center: This project was put on hold for the summer. The committee will restart programming meetings in the coming weeks.



Vocational Center: The Vocational Center project is an approved Final Project Proposal (FPP) at the Chancellor’s office. The project consists of 19,787 assignable square feet (ASF); which consist mostly of laboratories and some office space. This project will be considered for funding on the statewide general obligation bond in November 2014. The project is extremely completive and should have a great chance at being funded. Based on this assumption, construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2016.
