A new building is required for facilities grounds and custodial operations currently located in building O-300 to relocate 2 offices, breakroom and multiple storage areas for equipment and miscellaneous supplies.

Football Field Improvements

This new building will create a team showering facility and changing room near the football field.

technology center

This project is intended to provide open access computer labs and other computer technology-based instruction are also planned for the new facility. In addition, the Information Technology Services department offices will relocate to this new facility.

building h renovation

This existing facility is planned to be renewed and repurposed to expand Campus Graphics and provide permanent space for the Veterans Center in a location that is adjacent to the Student Center and Student Services offices in the One Stop Student Service Center.

Physical plant service lvc

This project constructs a new 14,948 gross square foot building with maintenance yard to store grounds and facilities services equipment. This will require covered area for equipment with power sources for electric vehicle charging. Facilities operates from a 2,417 square foot space located with-in building 3, science building, constructed in 1999. Grounds equipment storage has taken over an area that was intended for the arts program. The Lompoc Valley Center has now grown from 65,464 square feet to a total of 170,000 square feet of building space with the completion of the Public Safety Training Center. Therefore, this project will provide adequate space for custodial, grounds, maintenance, shipping and receiving, mail room, and warehouse services.

Public safety training complex expansion lvc

This project would improve and add to the functionality of the outdoor training facilities at the Public Safety Training Complex. The improvements include expand paving at the scenario buildings, restrooms for the outdoor training area, expand the fire technology simulated street area.

amphitheater lvc

The 300 seat Lompoc Valley Center Amphitheater will be a unique venue for events, instructional performances, and commencement ceremonies and would provide a signature outdoor gathering and learning space. The recommended location will help to integrate the Public Safety Training Complex with the original campus precinct. Great care and sensitivity to the environment should inform the design of the amphitheater. It is intended to be nestled into the existing site contours with the minimum amount of grading needed to achieve the design intent. The design solution should respect and use the many beautiful oak and eucalyptus trees and the other special character defining elements. Additional oak trees could be planted to screen and embrace the site. The design should be inspired by the natural beauty of the campus and should emphasize the appropriate use of local materials, such as stone and wood, in the construction of the amphitheater and site work. This facility would have the infrastructure and technology to support audio/visual systems and  provide lighting for night time use.
