Hartnell Community College District  - Alisal Campus

Salinas, California

Center for Advanced Technology

This 55,000 SF advanced technology building on the Hartnell College Alisal Campus, was the first project of the build-out campaign for the east campus.


This three-wing building replaced the Vocational building located on Hartnell’s main campus, which was demolished in the spring of 2011.

Wing A houses Administrative Services and staff, classrooms as well as a full-service cafe.  

Wing B is a 10,000 SF, 20-foot high building where Welding and Agriculture Industrial Technology reside.  

The two-story Wing C accommodates the majority of the classroom space and labs.


FCS’s responsibilities for this project initiated with the RFQ/P process to secure the Architect of Record for the project.  FCS continued working through program and design development, construction documents, bid management, managing the day-to-day construction, and concluded with building close-out procedure.


The Center for Advanced Technology was a 50-50 matching project, with $13.8M coming from the State of California and the remainder from local public funds.  FCS’s office also managed the reimbursement procedures with the State Chancellor’s office.
