CSM Design-Build Project
DB Project Overview
Project Description:

This multi-component project, to be delivered using the design-build delivery method (wherein a design-build contractor is hired to provide the design as well as construction of the project), will effect a renaissance of the College of San Mateo (CSM) campus. The project includes demolition of Buildings 5, 6, 10, 11, and 13; these buildings have exceeded their useful service lives, the layouts of the concrete walls do not lend themselves to repurposing, and their locations are desirable for new buildings. This project also includes major improvements to the exterior areas of the campus. Some of the major improvements include a new chiller plant, aquatics center, fine arts courtyard, and an electrical infrastructure upgrade.
