Project Title: Old Administration Building (OAB)
Funding Source: Measure E

Project Description: Renovation of 100,000 sq. ft. of historic building including seismic retrofit, structural, mechanical and electrical upgrades, and fire life safety and access code compliance. The building will include administration, classrooms, faculty and campus organization offices, auditorium, music/choral, library, staff workrooms and restrooms. The existing walls will remain intact within the new space configuration.

Anticipated Completion Date: Fall 2009

Status: The architects (ELS) and district staff have completed the educational programming and initial space utilization for the project. In August 2005 ELS and the structural engineer met with DSA and reviewed the draft EDCR (Evaluation and Design Criteria Report) for structural and fire/life/safety/accessibility. The final EDCR was submitted to DSA for approval November 11, 2005. The EIR is in progress and is scheduled for completion in February 2007. ELS is proceeding with Working Drawings. The Final Project Proposal (FPP) for additional State funding for the east wing was approved by the Board at the June 27, 2006 meeting and was submitted to the State Chancellor’s Office in July 2006. Bringing on significant classroom and faculty space has warranted the development of a campus wide utilization study that is ongoing now As a result of the funding for the Applied Technology project, the Board approved in August 2005 that the allocation for the OAB project be increased by $5.0 million for a total funding allocation from Measure E of $30.0 million. The Board approved at the June 27, 2006 meeting the selection of Harris Construction as the construction management firm for the project.

The Old Administration Building (OAB) project continues to move forward even if the progress seems slow and somewhat hidden from the observer.Detailed below are the activities the Architect and Engineers are performing to move the project through the Division of State Architecture (DSA).In reviewing these actions it is important to remember the OAB is one of the first projects to utilize the alternative design and approval with DSA.As such the District’s Design Team must not only perform the ordinary steps for DSA approval but must also develop and have approved a document called the Evaluation and Design Criteria Report (EDCR) which explains in detail the structural methodology to be used in bring the building into compliance with the Field Act.

Update on DSA Approvals

  • In early August ELS (architect) and A.T.Merovich (structural engineer) met with DSA representatives (primarily structural) to review the draft EDCR report (Evaluation and Design Criteria Report).DSA structural was generally very happy with the report noting that they received as many calculations and supporting documentation as they generally receive with full permit submittals.The DSA review was completed with some limited red marks to correct.Andy Merovich (structural engineer) is responding to the red marks and making any revisions relative to field materials testing.The only issue the design team is concerned with at this point, is that some re-bar found in the OAB is smooth vs. de-formed bar and may diminish the capacity of the concrete walls.This is still being research
  • At the same meeting ELS reviewed Fire/LifeSafety/Accessibility with Tom Haltom, DSA Fire and Life Safety Officer, a different reviewer than previous meeting.The matrix and supporting documents prepared as part of the EDCR was reviewed with him.He had no comments, but said he would review further and get back to the architect.In telephone conversation since that meeting, he noted he had no more comments.DSA will have further reviews as the final design and documents are developed but the Fire/LifeSafety/Accessibility portion is near resolve.
  • The final EDCR will be finished and submitted in October, 2005.When the EDCR is accepted by DSA then it, as noted by DSA in many meetings, will become the building code for this project.Any changes made during the design documents will be considered amendments to the EDCR. Between review of the EDCR and the submission of the final documents there will be no formal review, but DSA is available for questions.
  • Tom Winter (DSA Historical Expert) is retiring at the end of the year.There is currently no replacement identified.ELS will emphasize historic issues and work toward resolution with him over the next 3 months.

Update on DesignSchematic (Additions/revisions to previous concept set)
Classroom changes and details to reflect layout adjustments decided upon at recent meetings with Steering Committee.
Location of electrical/data components in classrooms.

  • Revisions to Cafeteria area for mechanical and electrical equipment.
  • Revisions in mechanical rooms to accommodate more precise sizing of mechanical equipment.
  • Some revisions to materials/finishes to accommodate shotcrete locations.
  • Sizing and locating electrical panel rooms.
  • Development of mechanical drawings.
  • Development of electrical drawings.
  • Development of landscape drawings.
  • Materials treatment, especially exterior materials.
  • Window repair/replacement.
  • Detailing elevators requirements and locations.
  • Auditorium systems accommodation.
  • Additional finish schedule/notes on drawings.
  • Toilet room layouts and fixture count verification
  • Incorporate in drawings all back and forth discussion between ELS and Harris during previous pricing effort.Including furnishing drawings as a reference to the construction drawings.

Bringing on significant classroom and faculty space has warranted the development of a campus wide utilization study that is ongoing now. An Initial Project Proposal (IPP) was submitted to the State Chancellor’s Office in June for additional State funding. The District has received Schematic Drawings from ELS and will be meeting with ELS to review in November 2005. As a result of the funding for the Applied Technology project, the Board approved in August 2005 that the allocation for the OAB project be increased by $5.0 million for a total funding allocation from Measure E of $30.0 million.
