PROJECTS IN CONSTRUCTION
Baker Hall Life Sciences Lab and Classroom Renovation
Work on the Baker Hall Renovation Project consists of renovating the Life Sciences laboratory and classroom, the addition of four exterior rain screens, new exterior wood doors, new cedar sitting benches and Audio Visual upgrades of projectors and screens in 13 classrooms. The project also includes new cabinets, flooring, painting, walk-in freezer and upgrades to the plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems. The project is scheduled for completion in December 2021.
Garcia Hall Renovation Project
Renovations at Garcia Hall, slated to be the new home of the Communication Studies Department, includes lead and asbestos abatement, new roofing and the renovation of four large classrooms, two workrooms, two conference rooms, and ten faculty offices. It will also be home to the SRJC student newspaper, the Oak Leaf. Anticipated completion is January 2022.
Kinesiology, Athletics & Dance (KAD) FACILITIES Renovations, Phase 2
KAD Phase 1 (football field and track) was completed in summer 2020. Phase 2 includes a new fieldhouse at the south end of Bailey Field with locker rooms for football, women track and field, and men’s track and field. Coaches’ offices will be constructed on the upper level along with an outdoor roof terrace, and new bleachers with a press box will be provided on the west side of Bailey Field. Phase 2 also will provide new Baseball, Soccer and Softball fields, and a new aquatics center, with a new 50 meter pool, adjacent to Quinn Center. The facility will include spectator seating as well as renovations to Quinn Center which will include new coaches’ offices and upgrades to existing restrooms. Construction began in the summer of 2020.
LINDLEY CENTER FOR STEM EDUCATION
The new 100,000-square-foot STEM building will replace the college’s existing science and math buildings, W.W. Shuhaw Hall and George Bech Hall, with a modern science facility. Groundbreaking for the new 100,000-square-foot STEM building took place in October 2020. The project design was approved by the Division of the State Architect (DSA) in March 2019 and the groundbreaking took place in October 2020. Construction completion is anticipated in Fall 2023.
QUINN CENTRAL PLANT PROJECT
The new Quinn Central Plant will provide high efficiency heating and cooling to numerous campus buildings and the future 50-meter pool. It will replace the old Cogeneration Plant which burnt down in 2015, providing heating and cooling to Bailey Hall, Maggini Hall, the new Lindley Center for STEM Education Building, Barnett Hall, Tauzer Hall and the Quinn Swim Center. The central plant uses specialized Heat Recovery Chillers which allows the college to use electricity very efficiently to heat buildings and pools thereby reducing natural gas usage to only the coldest of days. The plant is also being showcased as a living lab for students and staff to view and understand how central plants work and the engineering behind it. Annual utility cost savings of $150,000.00 are expected. Central Plant Project will prevent the college from installing chiller and boiler per building thereby having an estimated payback of 9 years. Additionally this project helps mitigate the college’s risk to rising electricity & natural gas costs.
Security Upgrades Project
Thanks to Measure H, enhanced security upgrades are underway at Santa Rosa, Petaluma and the Public Safety Training Center in Windsor. Work includes emergency call towers with 360 degree cameras, the transition from brass keys to key cards, and more. Completion is expected by May 2022.
The renovation of the nearly 80-year-old Luther Burbank Auditorium, was the first major capital improvement project of the District’s Measure H bond. The $28,000,000 project was completed in December 2019 and included complete renovation of the interior of the original main auditorium to a new 400-seat auditorium, with improved sight lines and full ADA access. Improvements to back-of-house production spaces include a renovated prop shop and full costume production facility, in addition to two new classrooms. The project includes a new “Studio Theater,” a multi-function flexible space that will be used as a 200-seat teaching classroom, a black box theater, and a movie theater. The exterior shell of the building has been preserved, but the interior spaces are completely modern, allowing the theater faculty more flexibility in the types of programs they offer. The overhead lighting and audio-visual equipment is state-of-the-art and built to match the standards that SRJC students will expect to find when they work in the industry.
The project was designed by the award-winning architecture firm Mark Cavagnero Associates, with theater consulting provided by the Shalleck Group. Local firm TLCD Architecture served as the Executive Architect for the project, with Wright Contracting from Santa Rosa as the General Contractor. Harris and Associates provided construction management services.
JEFF KUNDE HALL
Jeff Kunde Hall is the first phase in a multi-year development and construction process that will culminate with the building of the new Lindley Center for STEM Education. Jeff Kunde Hall includes permanent math faculty offices, eleven classrooms and four computer labs, which will be occupied temporarily by the displaced math, engineering and applied technology programs, while construction on the permanent science center is underway. Construction of the building started in October 2018 and was completed in August 2019. The buildings include permanent math faculty offices, eleven classrooms and four computer labs. These spaces are temporarily occupied by the displaced math, engineering and applied technology programs while construction on the permanent science center is underway.
KINESIOLOGY, ATHLETICS & DANCE (KAD) FACILITIES RENOVATION PROJECT, PHASE 1
Construction of the renovation of the football field and track started on April 2019. The football field was completed in December of 2019. The track was completed during the summer of 2020.
PETER W. BUSSMAN HALL RENOVATION (NEW HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICES)
Construction was completed on the south portion of Bussman Hall to house the Human Resources Department in order to demolish the Lucius L. Button Building.
EMERITUS HALL SECURITY PROJECT
This project kicked off the districtwide security enhancement project. The new electronic door hardware allows District Police to automatically lock entrance to all exterior doors in case of emergency. Interior doors are also equipped with upgraded locking mechanisms to allow manual locking under emergency situations.
PETER W. BUSSMAN HALL DATA CENTER UPGRADES AND FIBER LOOP UPGRADE
The Santa Rosa Campus Fiber-ring was completed in spring 2021 and completes the 10 Gigabit network upgrade project that began in 2015. The $6 million total project includes a $2 million upgrade of the network core equipment, $2 million in network edge equipment, and $1 million for new Firewalls and UPS equipment. The completed Fiber-ring project will improve both the bandwidth and resiliency of the campus network backbone, has a life expectancy and warranty of 20 years, and will complement the $6 million upgrade of the Santa Rosa Campus Data Network.
Santa Rosa Campus Roof Replacement and Repair
Measure H provided for important roof repairs throughout the District. At the Santa Rosa campus, roofing repairs took place at Baker Hall, Christine Pedroncelli Center, Garcia Hall, and Pioneer Hall.
