Construction is completed on the Early Childhood Center, which opened in August. The Roadway/Parking Lot project continues on the east side of campus. Construction begins on both the Health and Science Center and the Technical Education Center.

Construction begins on the Early Childhood Center and the Roadway/Parking Lot project on the east side of campus.

In June 2005, Facilities Planning and Construction issued the Facilities Master Plan document.

Throughout 2004, Facilities Planning and Construction worked on finalizing the master plan document to be in line with the verification process completed in 2003. Facilities Planning and Construction also coordinated plans and timetables, both on and off campus. This included the opening of the new Carol Stream Community Education Center; the addition of two temporary structures on campus in anticipation of extensive remodeling of several existing facilities; and the beginning of several projects in the design phase, including the roadway, parking lots and associated landscaping plan.

Gavin Tun, director of Facilities Planning and Construction for the college, led a major effort to examine the plan originally created in 2001. The plan was modified through the Master Plan Verification Task Force and meetings with college employees, students and community members, as well as a Facilities Master Plan Advisory Committee. The modified plan better reflects the short-term and long-term goals of the college.

In verifying the plan, the college met the criteria contained in the plan’s 15 objectives, many of which were established at the beginning of the process. These include increasing classroom and student space, linking east and west campus, replacing temporary buildings on the west side of campus, preserving the nature areas, minimizing the higher density/congestion on the east side of campus, and planning for future development.

College of DuPage creates a comprehensive facilities master plan.

New Buildings to be Constructed:

Technical Education Center (TE) will be located west of Lambert Road. This may house such existing programs as AutomotiveTechnology, Manufacturing Technology, Architectural Technology and Ornamental Horticulture, with the latter having a potential outdoor laboratory. Map

Health and Science Center (HS) will be located directly west of the Student Resource Center (SRC). The structure will have an adjacent outdoor laboratory and will be located next to the Russell Kirt Prairie. The HS will house both Health Sciences and Natural Sciences programs, such as Biology, Chemistry, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiography, Surgical Technology, and Zoology.

Early Childhood Center (EC) is located west of Lambert Road and houses the Student-Parent Co-op, the Louise Beem Early Childhood Demonstration Center, and the Early Childhood Education and Care program offices. Map

NOTE: Two structures on the west side of campus, which were originally built as temporary facilities in 1969, will be demolished. These are the Open Campus Center (OCC) and Building K.

Existing Buildings to be Renovated:
1. Student Resource Center (SRC)
The SRC, built in two parts, will become one cohesive whole. The building will be renovated into a true student center and will house such offices as Student Activities, Student Affairs (including Admissions, Financial Aid, Counseling and Advising, Records and Career Services) and the Culinary Arts program. The Library and the Bookstore will remain in this building.

2. Berg Instructional Center (BIC)
A complete renovation of the Berg Instructional Center as the college’s primary general instruction center will take place, including consolidation of the service core on the building’s south side.

Before the plan was implemented, approximately 7,300 parking spaces existed on campus. Refiguring the existing surface parking is increasing parking spaces to more than 7,601. Current Campus Map

Internal Roadways:
New roadways through the campus will help move traffic more easily and efficiently. One north/south connector will be on the east side of campus, connecting Fawell Boulevard and College Drive. One east/west connector is planned between Lambert Road and Fawell Boulevard. A new service drive will access the side of the BIC from College Drive. Finally, a new main entry boulevard will be located on the north side of campus off Fawell Boulevard. Map

Pedestrian Traffic:

Future Plans:

Five sites, three on the west side of campus and two on the east side of campus, have been designated as possible sites for new buildings in the future. Map

Long-term development, such as 50 years into the future, could take place in two areas.These areas reside on the southwest side of campus and will be set aside for this use. Map

Residents of District 502 passed a bond issue in November of 2002. The resulting $183 million raised from this action goes directly toward the building and construction outlined in the plan presented to the board. The price tag for the plan is approximately $297 million, with the balance to be covered by a number of different sources. These sources include the current construction fund balance, planned tuition increases and state funding.

A specific timeline for construction has been set. The college continues its intense examination of the sequencing, scheduling, prioritizing and budgeting of the plan.
