Design and construction of the new Center for Liberals Arts at the occupied College of Alameda campus. The 53,000 SF facility features two specialized buildings joined by a central atrium. A two-story administration wing houses conference rooms, offices spaces, seminar rooms, and Dean’s offices. A three-story classroom building houses lecture rooms, apparel design/sewing/arts laboratories, gallery, cafe and flexible learning spaces. A grand two-story atrium ties these buildings together, providing a warm community multipurpose space equipped with audio visual and lighting for art gallery or special exhibit events on campus. Structurally the new building is supported by deep concrete piles and import fill. Scope also covered site work and utility relocation.
