Facility is fifth and final project funded by Measure A
Butte College is celebrating the grand opening of its $22.3 million Student and Administrative Services building.
The three-story, 52,000-square-foot facility is becoming the home of student services programs including Financial Aid, Records and the Career Center as well as the Office of the President, Student Services and Human Resources.
The facility is the fifth and final project to be built with state funding since local voters approved Measure A in 2002, according to a press release. The other four buildings funded by the bond include the Chico Center, the Learning Resource Center, the Library Annex and the Arts building.
Construction of the Student and Administrative Services building has been on time and under budget since Butte College President Diana Van Der Ploeg and the Board of Trustees broke ground in May 2008. The facility is projected to be LEED Certified Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council, for its efforts to meet energy and environmental standards.
