Update on Measure E and C: Spring Quarter 2007


Projects in Construction

Campus Center: Renovations for this project include a food court servery area as well as major mechanical upgrades. The majority of the upstairs has been closed for renovations since fall 2006 and in order to complete the renovations, the kitchen and the food service operation closed on March 23, 2007. Refreshments will still be provided by various food vendors, the Bookstore and Ian's Coffee. The old Bookstore will remain open for seating. The lower level will be closing in mid May. The EOPS, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, Student Activities, and the Flea Market departments will move to the temporary modular trailers over in Lot C by the tennis courts. The DASB and ICC clubs will move to ADM 106. Le Cafe will also be closing in mid May. Health Services and Campus Safety and Security will remain in HCC175. Renovations will be complete to the whole campus center in late summer and all the departments, including food services, will move back for fall quarter 2007. The project budget is $5.1 million and primarily funded by the student body through the Campus Center Use Fee.

Campus Entries: The goal of the project is to improve traffic flow off campus as well as improve on-campus circulation and access to the campus. Two new campus entrances have been created. The first adjacent to the Flint Parking structure and the other in Parking Lot A. Two emergency exits, one on McClellan Rd and one on Stelling Rd are complete. This project also provided the campus with two electronic message signs, one by the Flint parking structure and one on the corner of Stevens Creek Blvd. and Stelling Rd. Other design features included in this project are landscaping, new city sidewalks, and enhanced pedestrian lighting. The project is scheduled for completion in mid 2007. This is a $2.6 million project.

Forum: The Forum project budget is split between Measure E and Measure C funding. The design phase of approximately $320,000 was funded by Measure E dollars. The construction budget of $2.2 million will be funded by Measure C dollars. Renovations to the Forum began last quarter and work includes upgrade of Hazmat and HVAC systems, room finishes including new seating, ADA upgrades, and the addition of faculty offices. The Forum is scheduled to be complete in time for fall quarter 2007.

Planetarium: Work on this project commenced in April 2006. The project includes upgrades to the electrical/HVAC systems, the restrooms, refurbished seats, new finishes, a new Star projector and a replacement dome. The $1 million Konica Minolta next generation Infinium S Star projector, which replaced the old Minolta Star Machine installed in 1970, arrived from Japan and has been installed. The funding for the projector came from State Capital Outlay dollars. The new dome, which was partly purchased from the proceeds from the October 2006 "A Night of Magic" has also been installed. The dome construction is made up of a ribbing base on which panels, with hundreds of holes in them to limit the amount of reflection from the star projector, are hung. Renovations to the Planetarium classroom are complete and the classroom is open this quarter. The Planetarium itself is scheduled to open later this quarter. This is a $1.2 million project (excluding the Infinium S Star projector and partial funding of the dome).


Projects in Design

E1: The E1 design budget of approx. $200,000 is split between Measure E and State Workforce Renovation funding (AB1802). The design phase will be complete in summer. The construction part of this project, approx. $2 million, will be funded with Measure C dollars and is scheduled to commence in Spring 2008.

Performance Hall: This project was approved by the DSA (Department of State Architects) and is currently out to bid. We will be breaking ground in July 2007 with completion scheduled for winter 2008. The demobilization of the Mod Quad trailers are complete with some trailers being relocated to parking lot C, by the tennis courts, for use as swing space for the departments in the lower level of the campus center while it is being renovated. State Capital Outlay and Proposition 55, which passed in 2004, will augment the Measure E dollars allocated for this project and there have also been external fund raising efforts. The current budget is $12.5M
