On February 8, 2018, the Board of Trustees authorized the District to award the Yuba College Veterinary Technician Relocation Project to relocate this program from Bldg. 800 to Bldg. 1700. The move will double the classroom and laboratory space, provide distance learning technology and is much closer to the “Farm”. This project was awarded to REM Construction and was completed in January 2019.
On March 8, 2018, the Board of Trustees authorized the District to award a Roofing Project for Yuba College. In order to maximize the “Best Value”, each building was considered a separate project and awarded to the lowest bidder. Brazos Urethane and Madsen Roofing & Waterproofing were each awarded multiple roof projects. The new roof systems provide a 25-year “leak free” warrantee with no cost to the District for any leak repairs and are “cool white roof” systems, which will help reduce utility costs. This project was completed in September 2018.
