On the eastern edge of campus, the two buildings are almost 59 thousand meters square, with classroom space for nursing students everything from the exercise of how to cook after suffering a stroke.
The main distraction in high-tech buildings will be the point of view of one million dollars from the Monterey Bay.
“The facilities of each program was insufficient,” said Kathie Welch, dean of health, sports, welfare and kinesiology.
A nursing student describes the study carried conferences, while next to it. A classroom instructor describes turntables makeshift beds with foam egg crate for assistant medical students to simulate processes.
The new buildings, painted in soft yellows and greens, has several practical classrooms, a gymnasium, a kitchen and a lounge where students in different programs can come together to work together, study, or just taking a break.
“This allows students have the chance to work in a space which is similar to health care in the world they will,” said Welch.
Construction began in May 2008 and the first programs will move into this summer. The buildings, which cost $ 28 million, are funded by bond funds from 1998 and 2004 a total of $ 205 million, the school has increased to $ 280 million through fundraising
and grants, the Board of Governors member Gary Reece said. The buildings mark a decade of change at the community college, including new parking, a student center and classrooms.
“To say that this campus is a bit different because he’s entered the understatement of the century,” said Reece.
The buildings will serve the nursing program, medical assistant programs, dental hygiene, radiologic technology and health information technology program in the future. Also house the stroke center that teaches students how to cope with the reduced role and a wellness center open to the public that offer weight management classes, among others.
Bay area companies took the initiative in building the complex environment, including water-saving toilets, faucets autosensor, paint products and special glasses in the rows and rows of windows that promote natural light.
Steve Stenton, an architect with RMW Architecture and Interiors, said the buildings were designed to complete the pedestrian walkways of the school and to anchor the east side.
“It creates a sort of exclamation point land bridge,” he said.
