2019 CCFC Conference and Awards

January 2, 2020

The Community College Facilities Coalition (CCFC) Annual Conference in Sacramento is always a great opportunity to meet with colleagues, learn about the issues and trends impacting Community College Facilities, and recognize the design excellence in Community College projects across California.

At the 26th Annual Conference in November, TLCD was honored to have two projects featured, one as the topic of a case study in a workshop, and another as the recipient of a design award.

Jeff Kunde Hall: Swinging for the Future

The recently completed Jeff Kunde Hall at Santa Rosa Junior College’s main campus in Santa Rosa is a 25,000 square foot facility that provides temporary housing for classrooms and labs, and a permanent home for the Math Department’s faculty offices. At a workshop titled “Swinging for the Future; Making your Temporary Space a Permanent Solution”, TLCD’s Carl Servais led a panel presentation focused on the design and construction process that made this unique design-build modular project a success.

The panel featured Santa Rosa Junior College Project Manager Heather Chierici, Peterson Mechanical Design-Build Engineer David Mahr, and Wright Contracting Superintendent Craig Gamble.

Award of Merit
College of Marin Academic Center

The College of Marin Academic Center is a 43,000 square foot facility prominently located at the entrance to the College’s Kentfield Campus, and was the final project in the District’s Measure B Bond Program. TLCD Architecture, along with Mark Cavagnero Associates, had the privilege of receiving an Award of Merit for the design of the Academic Center, which was presented at the CCFC Professional Design Awards Ceremony and Luncheon.

The project has been the recipient of multiple design awards, and this award was accepted by Mark Cavagnero Principal John Fung, TLCD Principal Brian Wright, and College of Marin Trustee Stephanie O’Brien.
