Project Description:
A new four story building for Science, Math, Art and Nursing will be located on the site of
buildings 400, 450, and 600 that have recently been demolished. Building 300 will also be
demolished after occupancy of the new building in fall quarter 2015. The new building will colocate all needed spaces for students and faculty in the physical sciences, life sciences, nursing,
natural resources, mathematics and art programs. Construction funding also included funds for
some of the necessary work needed for building 500 (gymnasium and fitness/PE space); this
building was attached to the 400 building and required the addition of a hallway, and other
electrical, telecom, and fire alarm work due to the 400 demolition.
The construction of this replacement project will be an important step towards achieving much
needed improvements in overall campus infrastructure, accessibility, functionality, energy and
aesthetics. This new building is critical to fulfilling the GHC Facility Master plan, achieving
GHC Strategic Planning Goals, and meeting the important goal of educating students in STEM

Project Status and discussion of Critical Path for Construction:
This project was funded in the 2013-15 capital budget passed in the 2013 legislative session.
Prior to the approval, funding had been on hold and not funded in the prior biennium due to state
budget constraints. The Design Development phase concluded at the end of May 2011, and the
Construction Document phase concluded in January of 2012. During fall and winter of 2012-13
the architect worked with design team consultants to reactivate this archived project, with
additional costs incurred. With concurrence of the State Board Executive Director and Director
of Capital Projects (and notification to Legislative leadership), the decision was made to go out
to bid prior to legislative funding, primarily to enable construction to begin in the dry season.
Permit submittal documents were delivered to the City of Aberdeen in April 2013. The project
was put out for bid in June 2013 with the bid awarded to Berschauer Philips (now Forma
Construction Company) on July 2, 2013. As of June 1, 2014 the project was on schedule and on
budget. As of December 1, 2014 the substantial completion date has moved approximately four
weeks to mid-June 2015 due to weather issues, and the project is still on budget. As of June 8,
2015 the substantial completion date has moved an additional 4 weeks to mid-July. The
additional delay was due to a combination of factors, including weather issues. The project is on
