Several bathrooms in the C and V buildings finally reopened after they were closed for the past three months while undergoing renovations as part of Measure P projects.
The C-building’s men’s room on the second floor and the women’s room on the third floor are now operational and so are the men’s and women’s bathrooms in the V-building.
The renovation is being lead by project manager Jack Schulman, who said the project went well considering the age of the building and the existing infrastructures.
“We hit some minor road-bumps due to the age of the building and infrastructure, but nothing that stopped progress,” he said.
In the renovation, everything including the tile, lighting, toilets, urinals, sinks, faucets, toilet partitions, and new painting are being replaced.
“The C and V building restrooms will be done in two phases as we need to keep some restrooms available for use while the other two are being remodeled,” Schulman said.
Even though the restorations do not affect the teachers and staff since they are permitted to use the faculty restrooms, one PCC student looks forward to the continued renovations.
“They’re a lot cleaner…there’s a bunch of bathrooms here so I don’t think it will affect anyone in any way,” said student Bianca Hidalgo.
With the first phase recently coming to completion, the second phase is already underway.
The V-building second phase started August 28th and includes the east side men’s and women’s restrooms. The C-building will start phase two renovations on September 9th and will include the men’s third floor and women’s second floor restrooms. The second phase is scheduled to be completed by late October or early November at the latest.
As for any future restroom projects, The R-building’s first floor men’s restroom will be closed for renovations at the end of September and should be completed by next May.
