Proposition S
This new four story, 85,000 gross square feet building includes facilities for student services on campus. Services include Admissions, Financial Aid, Evaluations and Testing, Counseling, student government, Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS), Information and Outreach, classrooms, conference areas and a Terrace Café. The project also includes a new express elevator between the lower parking lot and the upper campus.
All of the departments are arranged around an open four-level atrium, where students can interact with each other and the various departments in a single location. Each department opens into the atrium without doors, encouraging students and department faculty to engage each other without barriers.
Each floor opens up onto a series of outdoor terraces that move up the hillside slopes adjacent to the project, connecting the building to its location on campus and creating a vibrant point at the new north entryway to the campus.
The building is certified LEED Gold. Projected energy savings of 340,000 kWh annually are 35% better than state requirements. Water-efficient plumbing, irrigation and landscape will result in a water savings of 40% on the building use and 50% on landscape. The project includes materials and finishes that include recycled content, attention to indoor air quality and the use of natural daylight.
