New Career Development Office
Studio Art Hall
From summer through fall 2013, several offices will be relocated to upgraded spaces to better serve student needs.
The Career Development Office moved into their new Alexander Hall offices earlier this week. The space, located on the building’s east side and previously home to the Pomona Business Office, will consolidate multiple offices in approximately 4,000 square feet after an extensive remodel. The new CDO space features wood detail, natural lighting, comfortable seating areas, offices and interview rooms. The main entrance is on the east side from the new patio.
In August, the Writing Center moved to the former CDO space in the Smith Campus Center, providing it with a more prominent location on campus.
The Draper Center is scheduled to move in September to 735 Dartmouth following a major remodel of the 2,800-square-foot house. The new space will provide a consolidation of the Center’s physical office spaces and improved meeting space. The project is currently in the design permitting process with the City.
The Quantitative Skills Center will move into the Draper Center’s former space on the second floor of the Smith Campus center during the fall semester.
Built in 1958, Millikan was believed to be “unsurpassed for undergraduate scientific instruction” when dedicated. The new 74,868-square-foot, three-story building will, like its predecessor and neighbors, feature cast-in-place concrete, masonry design elements, textured plaster, a red tile roof and an entrance patio. The project will also feature a garden courtyard and outdoor experimental space.
The state-of-the-art facility will house a planetarium, teaching labs, classrooms, a colloquium, student research spaces, faculty labs, offices, student collaborative spaces, a machine shop and storage space.
As called for in Pomona’s Green Buildings Standards, the design and construction aims for a minimum LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Among the project’s green features are: LED lighting and lighting controls, including daylight harvesting; high-performance window glazing; a dual-temperature chilled water system; chilled beam and radiant panels with decoupled ventilation; storm water capture and treatment on site; and native landscaping.
Studio Art Hall
Work continues on the Studio Art Building on the east side of campus. The 36,000-square-foot, two-story building features lots of natural lighting, a central courtyard, classrooms, roomy studios, labs and exhibition spaces for sculpture, drawing, photography and digital arts. The building is being built to achieve at least a Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification program.
