Ceremonial shovels have turned dirt and construction will soon begin on a 120,561-square-foot mathematics and science building at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California.
Sundt is serving as construction manager on the project, which is scheduled to begin in July. HMC is the architect and the facility is designed to achieve a LEED Silver certification through the USGBC.
The three-story building will include lecture spaces, laboratory space, computer labs and support space for the Math, Biology, Life Science and Physical Science departments. There will be lab spaces for geology, biology, microbiology, zoology, anatomy, physiology, ecology, botany, marine life, physics, chemistry and organic chemistry. There will also be a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Center for students.
“The new building represents Sundt’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the community college environment, specifically with STEM projects,” said Sundt Vice President and Regional Director John Messick. “More importantly, this is the third project we’ve collaborated on with the Coast Community College District.”
