CMTS provided DSA inspection services for a new 30,000 square foot Library Learning Resource Center at Harbor College, completed in 2014.
The building consisted of a two-story structural steel frame with steel stud interior and exterior walls, a phenolic exterior wall panel system, access floor system, a fire sprinkler system, and fire alarm.
Built for sustainability, the Center’s rooftop is covered with heat island resistant white roofing and approximately 70kW of photovoltaic (PV) panels. The building has A-3 occupancy and is Type II fire rated. The project included removal and replacement of all existing underground utilities. In addition, the existing one-story concrete business building was demolished and the two portable modular buildings were relocated.
The Center includes traditional library space, a computer commons with over 100 computers, four learning centers, designated tutoring spaces, group study/testing rooms, offices, and a periodical room. The Special Programs and Services area consists of a high-tech classroom, other classrooms and offices. The main floor also has two main entrances, an atrium lobby, a dedicated staff entrance, photocopy/print facilities, and automated book drops.
