Barstow Community College District – New Maintenance and Operations Facility
Barstow Community College District
The Barstow Community College District’s Maintenance and Operations unit currently works out of several different buildings on the campus. We were tasked with consolidation of the unit and combine them with a larger warehouse configured for larger palletized deliveries.
The new building will house an information technology staging area, storage and imaging area for the entire college. Moving these functions out of other buildings on the campus allowed for more efficient use of the spaces for other programs.

The building is a cost-effective metal building solution with useful mezzanine spaces for staff and storage uses.
A solar carport structure is strategically placed to help divert afternoon winds from the large roll-up warehouse doors, and provide solar generated power for use in charging the unit’s many electric-powered vehicles.
