Saiful Bouquet provided structural design for the new 3-story, 85,000 gsf S.A.I.L.S. project which will house the College Bookstore, Student Government, and Food Services. The project also includes the 9,000 gsf Health Center/Special Programs Building.  Located at the center of the campus, the Student Union will be a state-of-the-art teaching facility and center of student activity including a student recreation room and facilities for a culinary arts program. The contractor, Bernards is partnering with HMC Architects to deliver the project using the design/build delivery method.  As part of this project, the team demolished ten structures to create space for the construction of the LEED® Gold Student Union and a LEED® Gold single-story Special Services and Student Health Center.

The SAILS Project also encompasses campus-wide infrastructure improvements, interior and exterior renovations of the astronomy building, and an interior renovation of the student services building to accommodate a Veterans Center.  New landscape and hardscape throughout the campus will also be included at the new central arroyo.

“Your expertise with DSA and the obvious professional respect received from DSA is a great asset in securing and managing the work.  With your help, we have been able to submit a project to DSA earlier than scheduled while overcoming program revisions that could have easily prevented this success.”
