Academic Center Construction Requires Lane Closures
KENTFIELD, CA—July 28, 2014—Construction continues on the Academic Center at the Kentfield Campus with sidewalk replacement and utility service tie in requiring lane closures. The County of Marin requires that portions of College Avenue are closed while work on these areas is in progress. The lanes will be reopened after the sidewalks and repaving on College Avenue are finished. The estimated date of completion is August 8, 2014. All lanes of traffic will be completely reopened by August 11, 2014.
The new academic facility being erected at the corner of College Avenue and Sir Francis Drake Boulevard will provide the campus with a welcoming “front door.” The new center will be approximately 43,000 square feet with 16 general-purpose classrooms, plus a 100-seat auditorium, and will cost about $23 million. The sustainably designed Academic Center will house a variety of disciplines, including English, business, computer information, and ESL among others. The innovative building has been designed by the award-winning firms of Mark Cavagnero Associates and TLCD Architecture. The use of sustainable building practices is concomitant with submission for LEED® Certification. Building completion is scheduled for mid-2015.
