Project Description

SMC currently has no dedicated childcare facility and offers lab instruction through various local childcare providers.  The District lacks a teaching laboratory facility in Early Childhood Education available at many other community colleges.  This project provides for a childcare center for the community plus college instructional facilities.  The City of Santa Monica is a partner in this project, providing the site at the Civic Center and a portion of the building funds.

information technology relocation

Project Description

The Information Technology department located in Drescher Hall supports the use of information systems on campus. The current server room can no longer support the power and air conditioning needs of the increasingly more powerful servers that are in use today. The plan is to move the department to a new building adjacent to the College's Media Center, which is located on the south end of the Library. Much of the campus technology infrastructure is already located in the Media Center, and the departments work cooperatively on many projects. The project will consist of a new 14,000 SF building and 11,000 SF remodeling of the existing Media Center. The space vacated in Drescher Hall will be converted to academic use as part of a future project.
