Construction Activity Update
Entrance Road Project
The Entrance Road Project includes the construction of a new four (4) lane, lighted entrance road, crossing a 153 acre site from Lewis Road to the central campus.
The New Entrance Road opened in May 2012.
Landscape Contractors have completed the new automated irrigation system that provides reclaimed water to the new trees, plants and shrubs that line the road and provide a lush landscape in the median areas. .
North Parking Lot- Phase 1
The new surface lot will include approximately 535 permanent parking spaces on undeveloped land adjacent to the recently opened Entrance Road. Contractors are currently installing underground utilities and are working diligently to complete and open the new parking lot by the fall semester.
North Hall Project
This project includes the demolition of portions of the existing structure, interior demolition and renovation of the remaining building, and new construction centered at the south end of the North Quad. It will include one 120-seat lecture hall, seven lecture classrooms (totaling 315 stations), three computer labs, lecture/lab support spaces, faculty offices, administrative offices and ancillary support offices.
With the roof tile, exterior plaster done and the painting nearly completed, the building exteriors will be complete this month. Hardscape walkways are being placed now. Renovation of the North Quad is in progress. Restoration of landscape areas will follow.
Interior wall framing and drywall is nearly done. Restroom tile and finishes in the Faculty Office Building have been installed. Interior metal doors are now being installed.
Boating Instruction and Safety Center (BISC)
The “BISC” Project (Boating Instruction and Safety Center) includes the construction of a new 13,000 square foot, two-story multi-purpose educational facility to be jointly operated by the University and the Ventura County Harbor Department. The project also includes a new boat dock.
The contractors have completed the offsite work, which includes new parking lots, storm drains, lighting, and street relocations that surround the new building.
In addition, framing of the new building is progressing well and is currently 60% complete. The new dock is in the pre-construction phase.
Operations staff is installing a new Green House for the Science Department adjacent Modoc Hall. Site work and foundation preparations are underway.
