Design work has begun for the transformation of a 30-year-old classroom building to include two state-of-the-art computer labs that will fully prepare students to take advantage of and master 21st century technology.
The renovation and modernization of Building 500
, which had housed classrooms, faculty offices, and the campus’ language lab, will include the conversion of existing educational spaces to provide two new computer labs, modernizing classrooms, and re-tiling of the roof. The building
has stood in its present form since the San Elijo Campus was constructed in 1988.
The $3 million redesign and modernization project is funded by Measure MM
, the $455 million bond measure approved by district voters in November 2016.
"This is the third of eight renovation and modernization projects planned at the San Elijo Campus," said Tom Macias, MiraCosta’s Director of Facilities. "We have asked the design team to maximize the existing space to improve functionality and incorporate improved technology to enhance the learning experience."
Little is serving as the project architect. Construction is expected to start in June 2019 and be completed by November 2019.
