The facility study proposed restoration and renovations to the 1913 building, including upgrades to electrical and technology systems, window replacement, masonry repairs, partial redesign of the floor plan, ADA improvements and a new elevator.
The Pedas Communications Center study examined con-verting the 2-story 3rd floor into 2 floors, creating an auditorium on the 4th floor. The floors would be com-pleted redesigned for the Center, containing offices, 2 TV studios with control room, 4 classrooms, screening room, radio station, newspaper/yearbook room, computer lab, editing suite, and support spaces.
The entire building would be designed to meet all current applicable construction codes. The building would have an elevator added. The study included written estimates, and a site redesigned as a new entranceway for the Center. The study also included rendered floor plans, site plans, elevations and perspective drawings for the College’s fund raising efforts.
