Master Planning for Five Santa Rosa Junior College Sites
Sonoma County Junior College District
Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Windsor and Forestville, Calif.
- Number of Schools: 5
- Completion Date: October 2016
The Sonoma County Junior College District (SCJCD) was in need of a districtwide facilities and technology improvement plan, the largest upgrade initiative in SCJCD’s over 100-year history. Comprised of Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) campuses in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, as well as sites in Forestville (Shone Farm), Windsor (the Public Safety Training Center) and Southwest Center in Santa Rosa’s Roseland neighborhood, the upgrade initiative is being funded as part of the $410 million Measure H bond.
A collaborative effort between QKA and international firm Gensler, SRJC underwent a full condition and needs assessment of buildings and building systems, with a concentrated focus on energy efficiency, health and comfort, water and wastewater systems and management, and habitat needs. The second phase of the process includes an analysis of demographic and education trends within the county with future needs for academic programs. Intended to serve as a road map for improvements for the duration of the 15-year bond program, the Facilities Master Plan (FMP) includes architectural and landscape blueprints, technology systems design and the creation of a building plan for each campus.
