The construction of Riverside City College’s Student Services and Administration Building is on schedule according to Arnold Arsenault, project manager of Bernards Construction.

“We are about 50 percent of the way through. Framing is being done as well as interior plumbing, mechanical and electrical work,” Arsenault said.

The building is expected to be finished spring of 2016, coinciding with the RCC’s 100 year anniversary.

It will serve as a one-stop center for student services such as counseling, admissions and records. It will also be used for student financial services, DSPS and EOPS.

Administrative facilities such as the president’s office will be located on the second floor in what will be known as the Noble Wing.

The building will be adjacent to the Math and Science Building and will take the place of  location of parking lot B.

The staging phase of the air conditioning units will take place on Ramona Drive before being raised with a crane on Sept. 1.
