Chabot College to break ground on new biology building
Submitted By Guisselle Nunez
Plans for the highly anticipated new biology building at Chabot College in Hayward will be unveiled at a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, May 15. Located in Chabot's parking lot C and adjacent to the existing biology building 2100, the new building will be a two-story, steel-framed structure containing 19,950 square feet. It will include five teaching laboratories with adjacent prep rooms and a cadaver room, a greenhouse and teaching support spaces.
Funded by Measure B, the estimated cost of construction is $26.9 million. This will be the final Measure B project for Chabot College. Most of the building is expected to be finished by Fall 2019, with classes set to occupy the space beginning in January 2020.
The building was designed by Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED), with management by Vanir Construction Management, Inc. and construction by W. A. Thomas Co. Inc. Once construction in complete, the building will be LEED certified Silver.
