Independence Day Operations Update

Independence Day Operations Update
July 5, 2012
Submitted by Amy Goings, MPA, Vice President for Operations and College Relations
I hope that faculty and students enjoyed the June break and Independence Day holiday.  I am sure that you continue to notice the facilities developments on campus. 
Here is a brief update on the ongoing projects regarding college operations:
Building 15 Learning Resource Center Renovation: I would like thank the Library staff, instructional administration, the Maintenance and IT staff for doing a yeoman’s job during the June break and getting the Library successfully relocated in order for Phase I of the Learning Resource Center to begin on time.  Phase I renovation includes exterior painting and a full renovation of the Library, E-Learning, Teaching and Learning Centers as well as the Tutoring Center and group study spaces.  Phase I is anticipated to be completed by the start of fall quarter.
Here are a few renderings of the newly renovated spaces within Building 15.  The first rendering is what you will see upon entering the building from the west side the second is the view of entering the building from the east entrance.

Health Sciences Facility: The Health Sciences Facility continues to progress on time and on budget.  Efforts are now underway to finalize the equipment list with faculty.  Again, you can always watch the construction progress in real time at www.cptc.edu/webcams.
Harrison Prep Academy Construction:  After a lengthy and thorough negotiation process with the Clover Park School District, construction will begin shortly on the new Harrison Prep Academy and Elementary School, which will be located where the portable village is currently located. 
The District purchased an additional six acres from the College for a total of $1.67 million, all of which will be spent on the Building 15 Learning Resource Center renovation.  Construction will begin shortly, and we will do our best to keep the Lakewood campus community apprised of any construction related delays.
You can find the complete listing of the Operations Updates and specific listings by visiting www.cptc.edu/blog and searching for, “Operations.”  Stay tuned as well for the new Operations website where you can find updated renderings on all of our current projects.  I will let you know when the site is up and running.  As always, if you have questions please, contact me directly at amy.goings@cptc.edu.
