Chandler-Gilbert Community College Lab Classroom Renovation

Chandler-Gilbert Community College Lab Classroom Renovation, Pecos Campus | Chandler, AZ | 3,600 SF

Deutsch designed the renovation of the existing Biotechnology Classroom Building “S”, originally constructed in 1998.  The building on the contains four laboratory classrooms and insufficient laboratory classroom space.   Uncomfortable and not very student-friendly laboratory space were concerns voiced by staff in early programming sessions with CGCC. We converted two existing classrooms totaling 3,600 SF into three student-friendly classrooms, with layouts more conducive to modern, technology-based learning. The renovations included new classrooms for Biology I, Biology II, and Micro Biotechnology and new mechanical upgrades.

MCCCD Sun Lakes Education Center Expansion

maricopa county community college, Sun Lakes Education Center Expansion | Chandler, AZ | 6,300 SF

Deutsch designed a second story addition at the campus, which included an intense Programming Phase and was marked by a large team of key stakeholders. Enriching this project was this team’s collective creativity, passion for life-long learning, CMAR experience, public education acumen, design talent, and budget/schedule consciousness. A design challenge was creating spaces that functionally meet a variety of needs for effective delivery of educational experiences, while providing adequate support staff space.  We designed flexible, multiple-purpose spaces configured to offer maximum comfort and accessibility in a context visually compatible with the existing building. These spaces are designed to inspire “boomer” age adults, calling them to a new, active stage of their lives, characterized by continued personal growth, personal reinvention, and new beginnings.

The building’s infrastructure was upgraded including the electrical, information technology, plumbing, restrooms, HVAC, fire suppression and roof systems. Upgrades to the HVAC system for the building include variable air velocity controls in every room, while upgrades to the integrated technology include fiber runs, infrastructure to support streaming audio/video and video capture while maintaining the communications and broadband systems.
