Burbank Theatre Restoration
The renovation of the Luther Burbank Auditorium, now nearly 80 years old, 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 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.

Projects in Construction
Lindley Center for STEM
This project design was approved by the Division of the State Architect (DSA) in March 2019. 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. The project groundbreaking is expected to take place in June 2020 with construction completion anticipated in fall 2023.
Peter W. Bussman Hall Data Center Upgrades and Fiber Loop Upgrade
The construction of the Santa Rosa campus fiber-ring will complete the 10 gigabit network upgrade 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 completion of the fiber-ring will coincide with the downsizing of the campus datacenter for energy efficiency and is part of the overall District Sustainability plan. 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.
