HED is pleased to announce that our team was selected to design the Mira Costa Community College District (MCCD) new Chemistry and Biotechnology Building
HED is pleased to announce that our San Diego team has been selected by the Mira Costa Community College District (MCCD) to design and construct a new Chemistry and Biotechnology Building on their Oceanside campus. The project, which is to be a design-build partnership between HED and C.W. Driver, will consist of 24,000 sf of new, state-of-the-art STEM instructional space for 21st century learning, including new chemistry labs and 40-person, flexible classrooms. As MCCD’s Biotechnology program continues to expand as its baccalaureate degree comes online, the new building will provide a new, expanded home for the program.
The intended location for the new building is on the northeast quadrant of the campus. When complete, the Chemistry and Biotechnology’s orientation will create a STEM academic hub. The project is envisioned to push MCCD’s STEM curriculum to the next level through a mix of instructional, work, social and laboratory spaces, activated by integration with the latest technology, to allow for a level of instructional flexibility that will benefit MCCD’s students.
The new facility is an investment beyond just MCCD’s campus as their STEM graduates go on to create immeasurable positive impact in our community. The HED / C.W. Driver team is extremely gratified and excited to be a part of that.
