Project Description The brand new, nearly 39,000 square foot two‐story West City Campus building is San Diego Continuing Education’s  newest teaching/learning facility. It was built to replace a complex of four outdated single‐story buildings whose programs  had long outgrown the available space. The campus, located near the Sports Arena in the historic Point Loma community,  was planned and built to be Continuing Education’s “Campus of Excellence” for Hospitality and Consumer Science. In  addition to housing one of the finest Culinary Arts kitchens in all of San Diego for teaching, learning and demonstration,  West City’s technology‐rich, state‐of‐the‐art classrooms are specially designed to enhance students’ skills in Sewing,  Business Information Technology, English for non‐native English Speakers, Parenting, High School subjects and more.

Sustainable Features • Low E‐rated windows and solar tubes help maximize natural  daylighting, reducing energy demands on cooling and artificial lighting.  Sensors automatically dim lights in response to natural lighting levels. • Low‐flow and waterless plumbing fixtures reduce water consumption  by over 40% as compared to a standard building, saving an estimated  386,000 gallons of water per year. • Sorting and recycling the construction waste diverted about 90% of  the project’s construction waste – approximately 200 tons – from the  local landfills. This included grinding the concrete foundations and  parking lot from the old buildings to reuse as base under the new  building. g • A high percentage of new construction materials are made from  recycled materials. This includes countertops made from recycled  newsprint, fences made from recycled plastics, and play surfaces made  from recycled tires. • Over 50% of the project materials were obtained locally to reduce the  negative impacts of transporting them from distance sources. • Trees and shrubs have been selected for their compatibility to the  area, to provide shade and to minimize the need for water. A high  efficiency irrigation system utilizes a controller that adjusts                  itself to the local weather.
