SBVC Applied Technology Building

San Bernardino Valley College to receive $2.5 million to rebuild Applied Technology Building.

Built in 1964, the Applied Technology Building is one of the oldest structures on the San Bernardino Valley College campus, but thanks to new state funding, it's about to have a makeover.

In the 2019-20 state budget, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has allocated $2.5 million to help reconstruct the job training center, which is used by automotive, aeronautical, welding, electrical, air conditioning and heating students.

"This is a victory for our students and our community who deserve affordable access to twenty-first century career education to enter the workforce," San Bernardino Community College District Chancellor Bruce Baron told IECN.

The $2.5 million is the first of a multi-year allocation, and the district will receive a total of $35 million in state matching funds for the project. District officials expect construction to begin in early 2021.
