Contra Costa College is a community college located in San Pablo, California. First opening in 1949, CCC prides itself on creating a premier learning environment with high-achieving students and dedicated faculty. With the construction of the new Science Building, CCC sought to foster meaningful connections between students and the sciences through engaging classrooms. Interior Motions, a long-standing partner of CCC, worked alongside SmithGroup to help them achieve that goal.
With over 7,000 students on campus, the Science Center needed to be equipped with furniture that could withstand the test of time as well as adequately service the needs of both students and faculty. Additionally, the building itself was constructed with modern architectural details so the furniture needed to enhance, not conflict with them. And of course, all of this needed to be accomplished on-time and within budget.
Interior Motions helped CCC furnish all classrooms with durable stools, work tables, and tablet-arm desk chairs. We even went as far as custom engineering the tablet-arms to be large enough to accommodate students’ technology. We also provided faculty with high-performance seating and ergonomic desks that would be conducive to heads-down work as well as student-teacher conferences.
The outcome was a beautiful space with neutral colors to compliment the features of the building. Thanks to the Interior Motions team, generations of students and faculty can enjoy this engaging learning environment.
