MiraCosta Community College District's (MCCD) Board of Directors has approved the award of a contract to modernize an existing classroom building at the district's San Elijo Campus. The $2,601,000 contract was awarded to Conan Construction, which has offices in Encinitas and National City.
The modernization project of Building 500 will begin this month and is expected to be completed in July 2020. The project will provide two new computer labs, new electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems, retiling of the roof, along with the addition of new classroom equipment, new furnishings, and extensive landscape improvements.
"This will be a moderate renovation of Building 500," said Tom Macias, Facilities Director for the district. He added, "Rather than tear down and rebuild, which would qualify as a major renovation, it is cost-effective to convert the existing education spaces into new learning spaces and upgrade the building's infrastructure from top to bottom."
The project architect is Little. Other project partners include Kitchell, providing overall management of the capital improvement program, as well as construction management services; Alliance Engineering, providing project inspection, and MTGL, providing special inspection and material testing.
The project is funded through MiraCosta’s capital improvement program, using funds from Measure MM, the $455 million general obligation bond approved by voters in 2016.
