BCA Architects, Long Beach City College District Partner to Modernize Health Technology Building
BCA Architects has partnered with the Long Beach City College District (LBCCD) to modernize its Nursing and Health Technology building, constructed circa 1969.
Home of Long Beach City College’s Health and Technology Department and its nursing program, the Health Technology building will undergo renovations to 23,250-sf of space. The modernization is designed to provide students with a 21st-century learning environment. The work will convert all existing enclosed areas to support new functional needs of the nursing department.
"BCA is enjoying our partnership with the Long Beach City College and their bond management team to assist in the modernization and expansion of this exciting and progressive program. The students of LBCC will be learning in one of the most state-of-the-art nursing and health technology facilities in the state," said Paul Bunton, AIA, president of BCA Architects.
Since 1927, LBCC has been serving the needs of the city of Long Beach (Calif.) and its neighboring districts of Avalon, Lakewood, and Signal Hill. LBCCD is making significant improvements to both of its campuses and implementing construction programs under the Measure E Bond Program, Proposition 1A, Proposition 47, Proposition 55, and state-funded scheduled maintenance projects.
The renovation of the Nursing and Health Technology building is expected to be complete in fall 2014.
