Summer 2013 Renovation Projects

Several renovation projects will take place at The Collins College during the slower summer months.

After the new computer lab opened last fall, students have repeatedly asked for a refurbished student lounge in Bldg. 79B. Their requests will be addressed this summer. The renovations will include a new coat of paint; new flooring;  furniture; a microwave, and fabric tack boards for student club use. 

Students will also return in the fall to a refurbished classroom that supports the Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch. The RKR's briefing and debriefing classroom (Bldg. 79, Room 108), used by the lunch and dinner classes, will receive a much-needed makeover with new vinyl tile flooring; fresh paint; new ceiling mounted lighting fixtures; modern furniture and accessories; a wardrobe closet; storage cabinet, and upgraded audio visual equipment. This project is graciously funded by The Collins College Board of Advisors. 

Beginning June 17, the heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) units on the roof of the Bldg. 79 will be replaced. While the majority of the work will be completed outside, the air conditioning and electrical power will be shut off periodically to allow for proper installation. This project is anticipated to be complete by mid-September.

As a part of the college’s ongoing sustainability efforts, some of the light fixtures in Bldg.79 will be replaced with energy efficient (LED) lighting. There will be utility shut-offs throughout the building from time to time. This project will take place over the course of the summer and is scheduled to be completed before the start of fall quarter.

During these summer renovations, access to Building 79 will be limited. Staff members whose offices reside in the building will be temporarily relocated to Bldg. 79B. If anyone needs to access Bldg. 79 over the summer, please contact Andrew Naranjo at
