Parking Lots 7 & 7A

Parking Lots 7 & 7A

Project Description:

This project will reconfigure both lots 7 and 7A. The construction of the science building and its geothermal field will encroach on some of the existing roadways and parking in Lot 7. In order to maximize parking and improve circulation on the south end of campus the remainder of Lot 7 and all of Lot 7A will be combined into one new configuration.

Keeping with our efforts to minimize our impact on the environment, best practices with regard to storm water runoff will be observed during this construction. The use of bio swales and other green practices will be explored by the site programing committee during the design and construction of this parking lot. Lot 7 will also have the college's first two parking spaces dedicated to electric cars.

Budget: $1,756,758

Construction Schedule: April 2016–August 2016
