New Science Building

Architect: Lionakis
Contractor: Harris Construction, Inc.
Web Cam: Live View of Construction Site

Located along Blackstone Avenue, the new science building will serve as a new front door to Fresno City College. Through an extensive FCC led planning process, it was determined that due to changes in pedagogy, that a new science building would improve instructional capabilities and the student experience. The new building will feature modern labs across several science disciplines and will also house flexible student study areas. The existing science facility is nearing the end of its useful life cycle and requires major modernization.

The new science building will expand the existing science building, which was constructed in 1973. The existing science building is planned to be modernized after the new science building is constructed and occupied. 

The District prequalified five general contractors to bid on this project with bids due January 13, 2022. Harris Construction Co., Inc. was the sole bidder. The Board of Trustees awarded Harris the contract on February 2, 2022. Groundbreaking happened on April 21, 2022. The project should be complete in 2024.

The anchor bolts and rebar have been installed, and the grade beam and continuous footings have been placed for a portion of the building. Work has begun on under slab utilities and forming of the curbs at the building perimeter.
