Proposition N
The new Cafeteria/Bookstore & Student/Campus Center is a three‐story, 76,700 gross-square-foot building with a cafeteria, bookstore, multi‐purpose room, convenience store, coffee shop/café and meeting rooms and offices.  It houses student support services such as admissions, counseling, financial aid, and student activities offices. The design includes areas where students can eat, socialize and access the Internet. Many points of entry and features such as elevated walkways, courtyards and exterior balconies engage the building surrounds and enhance student experiences.
The project is on track to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification from the US Green Building Council.
Sustainable Features:
  • The light well and atrium are multifunctional, harvesting daylight into the building core, creating ventilation and helping with way finding.
  • Photovoltaic panels capture energy and provide shade to the building and outdoor balconies.
  • Using Building Information Modeling (BIM) allowed the team to study building orientation and daylighting resulting in optimized sunshades for maximum efficiency.
  • The building is 35% more efficient than required by California's Title 24 energy efficiency code for construction
  • The building uses reclaimed water to flush toilets and for landscape irrigation.
