It seems like just yesterday when we were suffering from public funding uncertainty due to volatile market conditions. This case study discusses Academic Building II at California State University, Monterey -- a project that reminds us how we overcame that difficult time. This project underwent many state funding delays. As a team, we took these conditions into consideration and remained steadfast in our commitment to preserve the project’s planned budget.
California-based general contractor, Rudolph and Sletten, led the construction of a new state-of-the‐art science building at the San Diego City Community College completed this past August. Designed to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification, the $57.2 million, 98,000 square-foot, L‐shaped building will be four stories tall and house the Astronomy, Life Sciences and Physical Sciences programs at the San Diego City Community College.
