While working on a university construction project last year, Sundt Project Manager Dominic Daughtrey saw potential for saving a lot of time by improving the interaction between BlueBeam Revu and Microsoft SharePoint – the two programs used in the project’s document management system. Read more…
The excitement is building at San Jose City College in San Jose, California, where Sundt is currently in the preconstruction phase for a new two-level, 45,000-square-foot spectator gymnasium fitness center, which will include locker and dressing rooms, training rooms, offices and labs. The $21 million community college construction project also involves repurposing existing facilities to provide additional classrooms and lab space. A number of sustainable design features and construction techniques are aimed at helping the project achieve LEED Silver Certification.
Sundt has completed the $28.6 million Coyote Center at Chandler-Gilbert Community College, Pecos Campus in Chandler, Arizona. The 74,859-square-foot community college construction project is among only a few in the nation to blend athletics and academics with enrollment and student services. Touted as a “one-stop” student services area, the Coyote Center includes a 2,500-seat arena surrounding a 10,000-square-foot gymnasium, a fitness center, athletic offices and locker rooms, classrooms and testing facilities, administration offices and conference rooms.
Designed by Dick & Fritsche Design Group and Opsis Architecture to enhance the student experience, the Coyote Center is expected to earn LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Its sustainable features include a solar water-heating system, water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting technology, white roofing materials, and a sophisticated climate and lighting control system.
Sundt is about a month away from completing Coyote Center, a new $21 million student services and athletics facility at Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s Pecos Campus in Chandler, Arizona. The community college construction project has an innovative design that includes raised access flooring and movable partitions to allow the college to easily adjust the 75,000-square-foot space to take advantage of new technology. The project team is currently engaged in testing and commissioning the building’s systems while furniture, bleachers, telecommunications and AV equipment are installed.
“It’s going to be tight but we have good momentum and we should no doubt finish on time,” says Sundt Project Manager Chris Tinney.
The two-story building’s features include a “one-stop” student services area, a 2,500-seat arena surrounding a 10,000-foot gymnasium, fitness center, athletic offices and locker rooms, classrooms and testing facilities, administration offices and conference rooms. Coyote Center also has athletic treatment areas and an expansive performance area, featuring a four-lane, 60-meter sprint track and other turf areas for outdoor training.
Sundt has completed a major renovation of the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) at De Anza College, home to the school’s film and TV departments and the division office for Disability Support Programs and Services. The three-story facility offers dedicated labs and classrooms across disciplines including business and computer systems, digital media and language arts. The $8.6 million community college construction project modernized the building’s air-handling units, elevator, restrooms, data cabling and data rooms, and roofing.
