Project Summary

The new satellite campus includes two large-scale buildings. The first is the renovation and modernization of the historic former headquarters of the Van de Kamp Bakery into a two story, 41,785 SF Structure, with classrooms, as well as a library and art studios. The second is a new two-story, 36,671 SF education classroom building constructed behind it. Also included is a new 1,906 SF Central Plant building to house new chillers and boilers.

Some of the sustainable design strategies include maximizing natural daylight and ventilation, in conjunction with high efficiency lighting and mechanical systems with state of the art controls, as well as the extensive use of high recycled content and low-emitting materials. Our overall campus energy model helped to achieve LEED Certification.
