Neighborhood Updates for Physical Sciences Building ("C") for Noise Abatement

C Building - Phoenix College
Physical Sciences (C) Building


Phoenix College, the oldest college within the Maricopa County Community College District, will celebrate its centennial anniversary in 2020.  We’re proud of our history as well as where we are headed. With an enrollment of approximately 17,000 students, our student diversity is a tremendous strength — 54 percent of our students identify as Hispanic, 23 percent as white, and 9 percent as African-American. In addition, the majority are first-generation students, attend part-time, and are under the age of 25.

The success of a college relies on various factors; innovative strategy, dynamic instructors, dedicated staff, and engaged students are critical. But, just as essential to our continued success is the support of our community.    

The purpose of this site is to keep the Phoenix College community and neighbors updated on the progress of the implementation of noise reduction and visual screening for the Physical Sciences ("C") Building exhaust system.

At the end of December 2018, the contractor performed structural exploratory work on the roof deck to determine the most effective placement of the supports needed for the screen wall. This project went well and that data will allow the architect and contractor to quickly finalize the design and schedule for the screen wall. Below is the formal construction schedule.
