On Tuesday, August 23, the North Orange County Community College District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to expand the scope of the new Science, Engineering & Math (SEM) building at Cypress College. Though the project was originally approved by the Board in December 2015, information gleaned from the Mid-Term Educational Master Plan Update revealed that the College would need to increase the size of the building from 100,000 GSF to 106,023 GSF to accommodate the growing needs of the program.
The Board also voted to enter into an architectural consultant agreement with LPA, Inc. for work that covers the design and construction of the building. The state-of-the-art facility is scheduled to open in 2020 and will replace an aging facility that is substantially unchanged from its initial 1960s design.
