The $77-million project consisted of a construction management-at-risk delivery of a LEED-Gold academic multi-use building and an extensive sitework infrastructure package on CCSF's Ocean Avenue campus. The 110,000-sq-ft, three-story building includes classrooms, specialized laboratories, offices, study space and student development facilities. It features several sustainable design elements and collaborative construction initiatives.

Supported by a massive geothermal exchange system, a new central utility plant was constructed in the building's basement and is capable of delivering demand-based chilled and hot water for five buildings. The project's initial phase also included reclamation of an abandoned retention pond, requiring displacement of 1,300 student parking stalls.
