Project Information and Updates

Construction Impacts:

East Campus Drive Construction Delays March 22 through June 8

The Campus Wide Utility Infrastructure Project will impact East Campus Drive Thursday, March 22nd through Friday, June 8th.

The work primarily involves trenching and underground pipe operations at each segment of work identified in the East Campus Drive Work Phase map. The community will experience intermittent traffic delays on East Campus Drive between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily. There will always be one lane open on East Campus Drive with flaggers conducting traffic control. Impact to pedestrian traffic will be intermittent, and only during the infrequent trenching operations across sidewalks.

We will provide further updates and schedules for the remaining portions of the pipe installation pending the outcome of ongoing potholing and investigative efforts. Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions or concerns please contact PPFM Customer Service at (562) 985-4357 or PPFM-Customerservice@csulb.edu.

 

 

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, April 13, 2018

The following events are scheduled to take place next week, April 13th through April 21st, CSULB PH2 Renovation Project:

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

This work is schedule to complete on 4/16/18. There will be other work on the screen walls which is not schedule to occur until a later date.

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.

  • Sandblasting will occur at Stairwell at the East Elevation exterior, and inside the building to capture small areas which is for lead paint removal. This should be the final time for the sandblasting work. The work will be in full containment, and monitored. During this operation, we will be taking decibel readings throughout the day. The work is scheduled to occur Saturday, 4/21. The stairwell will be closed during this work only. The State Fire Marshall will be notified and consulted. Signs will be in place by the contractor directing where to egress at the Micro Biology Building.
  • Concrete Demolition continues at the 1st and 2nd floors, inside the building. The noise to expect will be from concrete jackhammering. This is work that must occur and with the method of to be used. If this causes too much disruption, we will reschedule this work for weekends.

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.
