Career Technical Education Facilities Site Plan and Elevation

IMPERIAL, CA—The design efforts for the Imperial Valley College's (IVC) New Career Technical Education Facilities are well underway. The community's support of Measure "J" has helped bring this project to a reality.

Measure "J" is an $80 million bond authorization that was approved by voters in November 2010 to improve education and expand career opportunities.

The project includes the construction of a new Career Technical Education Building and modernization of existing 1100, 1200, and 1300 buildings. The project has been submitted to the Division of State Architect (DSA) for review and construction is scheduled to start in Spring 2012.

The new Career Technical Education Building will house the expanded curriculum covering Administration of Justice * Building Construction * Correctional Science * Electrical Wiring * Electronics * Emergency Medical Technology * Fire Technology * Peace Officer Standards Training * Solar Energy * Welding Technology *.

IVC's construction team has commenced a series of subcontractor outreach meetings to encourage local participation on this project. Additional subcontractor outreach events will be held in December at the Pioneer Museum . The next event will take place on:

Friday, December 9, 2011 – 11:00am – 2:00pm
Insurance/Bonding/Prevailing Wage
Experts in Bonding, Insurance and Prevailing Wage will speak to various types of insurance products, how to establish or increase a business's bonding capacity, and review of Prevailing Wage processes.

For further information or to answer any additional questions, please contact Bill Gay, Director of Media & Community Relations at (760) 355-6124.

PRESS RELEASE

IVC CONSTRUCTION TEAM TO HOLD LOCAL SUBCONTRACTOR OUTREACH MEETINGS

IMPERIAL, CA—Imperial Valley College will be holding a series of workshops over the next several weeks to educate local subcontractors with an objective of increasing their participation in upcoming IVC construction projects.

"The Board of Trustees of the Imperial Valley College (IVC) is committed to hiring local firms to work on Measure "J" construction projects," said IVC Vice President for Business Services John Lau. "This is following through on our commitment to the Valley to facilitate more local firms to be successful in the bidding process.

Measure "J" is an $80 million bond authorization that was approved by voters in November 2010 to improve education and expand career opportunities.

IVC has selected Nielsen Construction Ca. to provide Lease-Leaseback services for the bond program.  Nielsen Construction Ca. will be holding a series of subcontractor outreach meetings.  All meetings will be held at the Pioneer Museum:

  • Wednesday – November 16, 2011 – BBQ –  10:00am to 3:00pm
    • Bond Program, Career Tech Description, Bidding and Construction Timelines
  • Wednesday – November 30, 2011 – 10:00am to 3:00pm (all day event)
    • BIM Seminar
  • Friday, December 9, 2011 – 10:00am to 3:00pm (all day event)
    • Insurance/Bonding/Prevailing Wage
  • Friday, December 16, 2011 – 10:00am to 3:00pm (all day event)
    • Recap and Q&A
    • Insurance/Bonding/Prevailing Wage/BIM Seminar

During the meetings, IVC and Nielsen Construction Co. will review Nielsen's role in the process, the project scope, and prequalification materials and requirements.

In addition, Building Information Modeling (BIM) seminars will be held to educate the local contracting community on the software's use and benefits.  BIM is a computer software tool that enables the coordination of building systems design and installation and analyses building efficiency and lifecycle costs.  The software enables all team members to visualize and coordinate a project in 3-D as opposed to 2-D plans resulting in more cost effective and high quality projects.  This tool has resulted in substantial savings in cost and time.

Experts in Bonding, Insurance and Prevailing Wage will also participate in leading several of these Outreach Events.  They will cover various types of insurance products, how to establish or increase a business's bonding capacity, and review of Prevailing Wage processing.

For further information or to answer any additional questions regarding the scheduled outreach events, please contact Bill Gay, Director of Media & Community Relations at (760) 355-6124.

The Imperial Valley College Measure L and Measure J Oversight Committee is excited to provide a brand new website to inform the IVC community about the progress of new construction and modernization on campus. Measure L and J were authorized by the voters of IVC to provide greater opportunities for students seeking career education and vocational training in our community.
