Swinerton Management & Consulting (SMC) was excited to receive two awards at the Community College Facility Coalition’s 25th Annual Conference in Sacramento. The CCFC Professional Design Awards are presented annually in conjunction with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. In addition to outstanding architectural design, awards are given based on merit, honor and excellence. Each project recognized incorporates outstanding institutional features that enhance the community college learning environment.
Skyline College’s Environmental Science Building 12 was presented with the “Award of Honor” in the Project Design category. This 21,000-sq. ft. building is designed as a shared facility for educational activities, community events, and enterprise functions. It is the first structure on Skyline’s campus to have views of the Pacific Ocean. Jurors said, “This is an ambitious project that recognizes that the college is of the community.” Occupancy is expected in Spring of 2019.
Cañada College’s Kinesiology and Wellness Center received an “Award of Merit” in the Project Design Category. This new 85,000 sq. ft. building is a new flagship prominently located at the campus entrance to serve students and the public. In addition to pools, classrooms, and fitness spaces, the building is topped off with an activated roof—boasting a running track, exercise space, sports courts, sunrise yoga and spectacular panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay.
