Sylvania Campus Oct 27, 2010 “Meet and Greet”

Interested in learning about bond-funded improvements slated for the Sylvania Campus of Portland Community College? If so, consider attending an information session later this month.

Come meet with the architects and catch up on Bond progress - October 27

Set for Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Cedar Room of the CC Building (12000 SW 49th Avenue, Portland, 97219), the session will be led by GBD Architects and members of the college’s bond team and Sylvania’s administrative team.

Portland Community College is the largest post secondary institution in Oregon, serving more than 90,000 students annually – more than the seven Oregon universities combined. The college’s Sylvania Campus is its largest and oldest campus, home to 25,000 students and several 40-plus-year-old buildings in serious need of updates.

Research surrounding the campus’ renovation needs, coupled with the passage of PCC’s bond measure in November 2008, have enabled planners to assemble a long-term construction program for the campus. This month’s information session will address approximate construction timelines, as well as the renovation impact to several Sylvania buildings and campus to:

  • Add and renovate workforce training, instructional facilities
  • Renovate and modernize student services areas
  • Upgrade classrooms and office space
  • Add a child development center
  • Initiate health and safety upgrades to buildings and campus
  • Implement the first phase of the “Road to NetZero – the E6 Plan”
  • Improve safety and evacuation needs as part of campus road construction

Join the discussion about Sylvania’s bond planning and renovation – estimated as a five-year project. It’s a chance to ask questions, listen to plans and engage in conversation. Appetizers and refreshments will be provided.
