CSM Sitework Design-Build Project
CSM Design-Build Sitework
Project Description:

CSM’s campus exterior will be revamped to take advantage of its idyllic hill top location. The new landmark entries at Hillsdale Boulevard and CSM Drive will provide gateways to a lively campus where students and the community will feel inspired to participate in college activities, with gathering spaces acting as centers of concentrated activity and energy. The Fine Arts Courtyard between the newly renovated buildings 2 and 4 will provide the campus an opportunity for outdoor events. Landscape improvements will create hierarchies to define vehicular and accessible pedestrian circulation routes and manage pedestrian/vehicular interface. Emergency vehicle access will be improved, as well as other safety and security measures. Public transportation, passenger drop-off and pick-up zones, service & delivery zones will be enhanced. Wayfinding signage, exterior lighting, concession kiosks, and provisions for art will also be part of this project.

In addition to the exterior this project will also serve to relocate load center #4 which is a part of the campus main power distribution grid.
