Craven Hall repair project forces office reshuffle


If you’ve noticed what appears to be excessive activity in the hallways of Craven Hall, you wouldn’t expect it.

Planning, design and construction staff moved offices in preparation for a major repair project on the Cal State San Marcos Administration Building that will take more than six months.

The name of the project may be a mouthful – Craven Hall West Exterior Wall Replacement and Repair – but its goal is straightforward: to repair the west side of the building to address the many leaks reported by faculty and staff over the years.

Facility Services has performed repair work on leaks in the three decades since Craven Hall opened. Now is the time to take a more holistic approach.

The project is scheduled to start on March 21 and end on October 31. During this seven month period, a PDC team led by project manager Bryan Licht will remove the existing masonry, exterior wall cement plaster system and windows, and rebuild the west elevation with a new plaster system. exterior wall and new windows while repairing existing masonry and underlayment.

Nine departments will see their office space affected by the construction work: Undergraduate Advisory; IITS; Financial aid and scholarships; admissions and registrar; safety, health and sustainability; Procurement and Payroll; Office of the President; Provost’s Office; and academic advancement.

University Advancement, for example, moves from the west side to the east side of Craven’s fifth floor, in a suite of offices vacated by the CSUSM Corporation (now in the Extended Learning building). In another case, it’s temporary musical chairs — the president’s office is moving down the fifth-floor hallway to replace the provost’s office, which has taken up residence across the hall. And other departments are coping with the lack of space by turning to telecommuting agreements while the project is underway.
