This two-part project combined the complex remodeling of a 1974-era masonry structure and a LEED Gold certified new building. In close collaboration with CCD Student Affairs and Education Provost staff and students, an extensive programming effort identified the need to support student interaction, complicated enrollment and testing processes, and a strong sense of welcome. Paid for primarily by student funds, the careful stewardship of that funding was a guiding principle in design and construction.
