Major Projects in Construction

Projects in Progress

Peterson Hall #2 Renovation Project- Student Success Center

Summary: The Peterson Hall 2 Renovation Project will provide a “Student Success Center”, a consolidated home for multiple campus organizations that primarily help disadvantaged and struggling students stay in school and attain their degrees. The renovation project will also provide new academic labs and studio spaces for various programs. An existing open exterior area on the south side of the building will be turned into a thriving outdoor plaza with abundant seating and Wi-Fi. The building will also have a new student lounge that will be built at the second floor that will maximize views towards the adjacent quad. All major systems of the building will be replaced in the renovation but the shell of the building will be maintained to reduce waste.  This renovation will achieve US Green Building Counsel’s prestigious LEED Gold certification for its sustainable design elements.

Construction Progress Reports Available via Email

Design and Construction Services (DCS) introduced a new email bulletin to communicate the progress of the Student Success Center Project to the campus and neighboring communities. This email bulletin will be sent only to campus members that subscribe to this correspondence. It is meant to keep interested individuals informed of the pertinent activities on the PH2 construction site that could have an effect on immediate areas outside of the project boundary.

Examples of items that may be communicated weekly are:

  • Current construction schedule
  • Upcoming construction activities that may affect adjacent buildings
  • Scheduled major deliveries
  • Weekend, night or holiday work
  • Parking closures
  • Any other planned activities that could possibly affect the campus community
  • Explanation of recent unforeseen or unplanned activities that caused an impact

An email will be sent once a week, scheduled for Fridays. The first email correspondence is scheduled for Friday, December 1, 2017. If you would like to subscribe to this weekly progress email, please email Jeff.Bahr@csulb.edu with your request. Please note that DCS will continue to send campus wide emails reporting all major activities that will affect the campus at large. If you are only concerned with major activities, there is no need to subscribe to receive these more detailed progress updates.

Email updates will also be posted on the Design and Construction website under “Project Information and Updates.”

CSULB wants to be a good neighbor as we build our future Student Success Center. If you have questions or comments please feel free to contact the onsite Construction Manager Jeff Bahr at Jeff.Bahr@csulb.edu or (951) 970-6354. Our goal is to minimize surprises and disruptions as much as possible and make this experience positive for everyone.

Project Update, June 22, 2018

The following events are scheduled to take place next week, June 22nd through June 30th, CSULB PH2 Renovation Project:

Upcoming Construction Activities that may affect adjacent buildings next to the PH2 Building

The following activities will take place next week and will cause noise. These activities will not be a constant noise, the noise will be at random short intervals and is not anticipated to be at a level that would be disruptive.

  • Interior construction for new walls, plumbing, electrical and Heating, Cooling and Ventilation systems for the PH2 Building will continue throughout next week. The noise level from this operation is anticipated to be low. Small tools will be in use.
  • Parking Lot E7 work is ongoing through July 9, 2018. The work being completed is for the construction of the required accessibility parking lot and concrete walks improvements and leading up to PH2, East Stairs. The parking lot has limited parking available currently during this construction period. Access to buildings PH1, Microbiology and F0 5 will remain impacted by this work, and signage is in place by the contractor directing pedestrian traffic where to access buildings. F0 5 will need to continue to enter and exit at PH1 as previously notified.
  • Work at the West Accessibility Ramp for the project continues during this coming week. This is a low noise operation.

The following activities will take place next week and will cause noise. We have added sound insulation around the jackhammering to lessen the noise that will be produced outside the building. We will keep a diligent watch on the noise that is emitted in order to keep it under Campus regulations.

  • Interior demolition inside the building will be ongoing during the week. This work when performed will be intermittent. The noise to expect will be from jackhammering, and the compressor running. This is work that must occur and with the method to be used. Should the work be too disruptive, we may need to move to the weekends to be completed.
  • Site work with for the storm drainage system at the South side of the project will start this coming week. The use of a tractor to dig will be in use for this work. The noise level for this operation is the use of a tractor.

This next week all deliveries to the central quad will be scheduled between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M.

There will be No work this weekend.

The project has not experienced any major delays and is currently on schedule to open as planned in January of 2019.

College of Continuing and Professional Education- CCPE New Classroom Project

Summary: The College of Continuing and Professional Education at Cal State Long Beach (CCPE) has evolved to an internationally recognized program, attracting students from as far as Dubai and Central China, as well as serving the educational needs of adult learners in the community and on the campus itself.   Currently, CCPE holds classes in the University Foundation building and various facilities on and off campus. This new building would centralize and consolidate these spaces.

The proposed facility will be a 34,000 sf, 3-story building which will house classrooms, student interaction spaces, and a multi-purpose conference facility. The conference area of the facility includes an outdoor pre-function space that leads into an interior conference room with a capacity of approximately 240.  When needed, the conference space can transition into three smaller classrooms by operable partitions.  Other space on the first floor consists of a catering kitchen, student vending area, and indoor lobby with elevators and restrooms. The second and third level consists of classrooms, restrooms, and utility rooms. 

The new building is a steel structure, and exterior materials consist of brick, plaster, glazing. New landscape compliments the existing landscape and creates flow to the building entries while carving out a new destination spot on campus for the students to study and hang out.  The new building mechanical system will be incorporate natural ventilation and in-slab radiant pipe cooling.  This system, along with other sustainable features, will contribute to this being the first Zero Net Energy classroom building in the CSU system as well as earning the prestigious US Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum certification.

SHS Exam Room Renovation

Student Health Services is an outpatient clinic with Primary Care, Women’s Health, and Sports Medicine facilities available for students.  It is located on campus at the corner of Beach Drive and Merriam Way.  The renovation project consists of tenant improvements that will enhance the efficacy of the programs within the building.  The entrance to the building, exam rooms, clinician spaces, and restrooms will be upgraded to meet the current California Building Code and the American with Disabilities Act. 

The project consists of improvements to the upper level and the lower level as well as the exterior path of travel.  Although the flow of traffic through the building will remain intact, exam rooms, clinician spaces, and restrooms will be upgraded to today’s standards.  Patient flow will enhance with the new programming layout, and physician-patient interaction will be more comfortable with the new space layout.  Calm and relaxing design palettes are intended to provide a serene setting.  In addition, a new walkway ramp at the main entry and renovated restrooms provide ease of access. Overall, the improvements will allow the staff to better serve the students and will enhance the patient experience.
