Construction Impacts:

Heating Hot Water Infrastructure Project

October 3, 2018 – January 4, 2019

On October 3rd, 2018, the Infrastructure Heating Hot Water project contractor will be starting pipe placement operations along East Campus Drive and will continue to work across the upper campus. Intermittent traffic delays between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. will occur during material transportation and as the construction progresses near MLSC, FO4 and UTC buildings. One lane will be open at all times at East Campus Drive with flaggers directing traffic in both directions, and both lanes will be open after hours. Construction along East Campus Drive is expected to complete by December 4th, 2018.

Construction operations at the remainder of the work segments will follow the timeline indicated on the project map and will be coordinated further with the pertinent facilities and parties as the work progresses. Signage will be posted to warn and assist the vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and fencing will be erected where needed. For questions, please contact PPFM Customer Service at (562) 985-HELP (4357) or email PPFM-CustomerService@csulb.edu.

December 3, 2018 – January 21, 2019

Starting December 3rd, 2018, the Utility Infrastructure Contractor will be performing construction activities around the Central Quad, Parking Lot E10, Bookstore and the Psychology building. This project is replacing the aging hot water piping system on campus eliminating breaks and  providing more reliable and efficient heating and hot water to our buildings for the future.

Pedestrian traffic will be affected for a period of approximately 6 weeks and we apologize for any inconvenience you may experience when using central campus. Signage will be posted to direct pedestrian traffic via alternate routes (see map). Alternate accessible routes will be available. The construction work will be complete by January 21st, 2019.

Please contact Physical Planning and Facilities Management Customer Service (PPFM-CustomerService@csulb.edu or 562-985-HELP) with any questions or concerns.

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, December 14, 2018

The following events are scheduled to take place next week, December 15th through December 21st, 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.

  • Continued Interior construction for finishing walls (Wood slat finishes at basement, 1st and 2nd Floors) in the lobby and at the central stairs, finish work for electrical and plumbing systems, painting and ceiling grid tile installation for the PH2 Building will continue throughout next week. Work for the central stairs also ongoing for next week for paint and handrails at the central stairs.  Elevator operation and testing through next week. Installation of modular furniture/cubicles on the First floor to continue and will finish by Monday 12/17. Second floor furniture assembly to begin next week. Interior cleaning ongoing throughout next week. Small tools will be in use so the noise level from this operation is anticipated to be low.
  • Parking Lot E7 work is ongoing through December 7th, 2018. The work being planned for relocation of the parking lot ticket pay station.  The majority of the parking lot is available during this construction period with the exception of the south aisle (for continued laydown) and the two accessible spaces near the existing ticket pay station. Access to buildings PH1, Microbiology and F0 5 will still be limited in impacted by this work, and signage is in place by the contractor directing pedestrian traffic where to access buildings. Some parking stalls may be temporarily unusable when the contractor stages and pours the concrete for pads on the east side of PH2, Monday November 5th.

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.

  • Canopy Work on the south side of the building ongoing as well as the installation of finish exterior metal at the Student Lounge. Stair handrail installation is ongoing central stairs. This work when performed will be intermittent. The noise to expect will be from continued saw-cutting wood finishes, and shop vacuums. 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 central court planters ongoing through this coming week. Storm drain work at the north side walkways done with replacement of the concrete left for next week. North door tile installation ongoing through next week. The use of a backhoe to dig and re-compact the soil for the trenches will be ongoing for this work. Noise levels will be monitored to minimize disturbance to the University.
  • Design Team is coordinating initial punch list walkthroughs of the building by discipline; Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical/Data interior ongoing on certain completed rooms.  Plumbing not yet ready and should be performed next week.  Exterior not yet ready for punch listing.

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 work this weekend.

  • Contractor will be working this weekend of Saturday December 15th and Sunday December 16th – Swinerton will have full crews for exterior hardscapes and landscaping, exterior building finishes, interior wood finishes, painting, electrical work along with FA and elevator testing. 

The project has experienced a minor delay in completing the central stair and the installation of the fire rated walls at the utility shafts, however the contractor is still currently working on a schedule mitigation in order 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.
