Point Dume Marine Science School

Point Dume Marine Science School LogoThe PDMSS campus will continue to see a lot of construction activity between now and the fall of 2019 when we will welcome Cabrillo students to the PDMSS campus. Below is a rundown of what’s going on, and what’s planned.

Air conditioning: New air conditioning units have been installed throughout campus, but we still await the installation of electrical switchgear that will allow us to power-up the units. As a reminder, these electrical upgrades, including an upgraded power supply from Southern Cal-ifornia Edison, will prepare us to handle the additional energy needs of our expanded cam- pus next year. Weexpect completion following winter break.

Septic system: Necessary septic system improvements that can accommodate additional classrooms and students are complete.

North parking lot: Paving, topcoat and striping will be scheduled soon.

Security: New door locks will be installed on all doors in the first week of November.

We expect construction on Phase I to begin during spring break of 2019.
