Vision 2030, Evergreen Valley College
Client: San Jose Evergreen Community College District
Location: San Jose, CA
Facilities Master Plan
Size: 130 acres
Vision 2030 focuses on the replacement of aging facilities on a Rural Campus. EVC is challenged to increase its density while defining a sense of place; Vision 2030 focused on connecting a bifurcated campus, creating a pedestrian oriented core.
The Building/Facilities Program was based on a complete program of development, driven by the Educational Master Plan, that addresses the total needs of the College through 2030 and meet and support growth projections while simultaneously address aging buildings and infrastructure. The plan also identified neighborhood growth opportunities beyond 2030, providing density and flexibility in the campus growth framework. In addition, campus systems were addressed to evaluate traﬃc circulation and pedestrian way-ﬁnding with a goal of enhancing student access and student safety.
The final plan results in a resource for decision making in support of the distribution of monies for current capital projects, as well as providing additional opportunities for leveraging state funding.
