2004 bond measure and state funding. Seven major projects were established to be completed by July 2012, with Klassen Cor-
poration serving as Construction Program Manager.
The West Campus Expansion project develops two 10-acre parcels of undeveloped land and renovates another 35 acres of

2004 bond measure and state funding. Seven major projects were established to be completed by July 2012, with Klassen Cor-
poration serving as Construction Program Manager.
The West Campus Expansion project develops two 10-acre parcels of undeveloped land and renovates another 35 acres of
property resulting in 55 acres of total improvements. Due to the complex logistical issues for developing the west side of the
campus, six specic Facilities Master Plan project requirements were combined into one project identied as the West Campus
Expansion. The six Facilities Master Plan project requirements included: New Northwest Parking Lots; Renovation and Expan-
sion of Parking Lot #3; ADA, Safety and Code Compliance Upgrades; Renovation and Expansion of Physical Education Fields;
Renovation of Marauder Stadium; Infrastructure Improvements.
The new northwest parking lots (Lot #1 & Lot #2) and the expansion of parking lot #3 provides an additional 600 parking spac-
es to meet the forecasted growth of the college as well as provide parking for the community who utilize the athletic facilities.
Safety measures include state-of-the-art lighting systems and an emergency phone system.
Other athletic renovations include grounds and facilities not upgraded since the 1960s. The facilities include two regulation
soccer elds, two physical education elds, half mile running track with tness circuit, law enforcement academy obstacle prac-
tice course, baseball stadium, softball stadium, and track and eld throws area.
The renovation of Marauder Stadium provides the rst major face lift for this heavily used venue in over 40 years. The multipur-
pose stadium has been updated to meet current standards for football, soccer and track and eld. The stadium also continues
to host numerous community events, graduation ceremonies and many other community and college special events.
A critical portion of the West Campus Expansion project was the installation of new campus infrastructure. The rst phase of
the project included a new campus storm drain system. Other infrastructure improvements include water for irrigation, re
suppression and domestic uses, electricity for lighting and operational requirements, technology for emergency phone system
and other voice/data requirements and sewer for restrooms.

DELANO JOINT UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT
Cesar E. Chavez High School • Delano, California
The school has 84 classrooms, 79 teaching stations, and a 600-seat Performing Arts Theater to accommodate a

ing LAN and ber optic backbone for communications systems and Internet access. Buildings feature overhangs
to address dierent exposures to sunlight and exploit energy conservation for heating and cooling systems. In the
campus central quad large landscape areas allow students to mingle, visit friends, enjoy the fresh air and freedom of
open space.
The largest structure on the new campus is the sports complex. It provides separate facilities for both boys and
girl’s indoor athletic activities each equipped with its own locker rooms and showers for the students. This permits
practice sessions and interscholastic competitions to proceed concurrently. The architectural design provides crisp
denition of both the north and south side of the façade; which is interrupted by eight vertical pilasters that add
emphasis to the forty- foot height of the structure.
The administrative and communication center of the school is the administration building. It serves as the grand
