The PSEC Construction
 
Construction of the Physical Sciences & Engineering Center (PSEC) began in February 2011 by the Bay Area's Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company. The project, which has a cost $41,576,000, is funded by Measure C — a $490.8 million bond approved in 2006 by voters residing in the Foothill-De Anza Community College District service area.*
 
The project includes complete reconstruction of Parking Lot 4 and site improvements around a new three-building complex. Download the Construction Zone Map (pdf). To see the time-lapsed construction process, play the video above.
 
*The Foothill-De Anza Community College District service area includes the communities of Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale
and portions of San Jose, Santa Clara
and Saratoga.
 
Topping Out Ceremony — Oct. 21, 2011
 
Donors, community leaders, and Foothill-
De Anza Community College District trustees joined Foothill College students, faculty and staff for a construction site topping out ceremony for the college's new PSEC buildings on Friday, Oct. 21, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
 
The ceremony gave key players in a building's creation the opportunity to sign their names to the final beam that will be moved into place by workers to mark the topping out phase of the structure's steel frame. The event took place in Parking Lot 4, which is adjacent to the construction site of the new building at the campus in Los Altos Hills.
