Sundt is the Construction Manager at Risk for the $55 million project. The firm constructed a 71,000-square-foot, three story classroom and administrative office building. The new building provides a centralized location for international students, allows opportunities for them to integrate more with the general student population, and enriches student and academic life. 

The event, held inside due to strong winds, was attended by campus administrators, including President Tomas D. Morales; Vice President for Administration and Finance, Douglas Freer; and San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis. College of Extended Learning Dean Tatiana Karmanova talked about the tremendous positive impact the new facility will have on the college and the CSUSB campus. 

CGI includes 24 classrooms, a 250-seat auditorium, reconfigurable multipurpose rooms, study lounges, retail food services, and spaces for hosting indoor and outdoor special programs. Sustainable building features include extensive use of natural lighting and ventilation, energy efficient LED lighting with smart controls, water efficient plumbing, and energy efficient windows. 

“We are excited to build this new hub of student life at Cal State San Bernardino,” said Sundt Project Executive Betty Lynn Senes. “Sundt Construction is all about continual learning, and the College of Extended Learning serves the local population — from high school to professionals seeking to advance to retirees — providing a rich educational experience for the diverse population of CSUSB students.” 

The project was completed in late summer 2019.
