LOS ALTOS HILLS, Calif. - Sept. 5, 2019 - PRLog -- Alten Construction, a full-service San Francisco Bay Area commercial construction company, recently completed construction on a new office building for the Foothill-De Anza Community College District, which operates Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, Calif. and De Anza College in Cupertino, Calif.

Alten Construction broke ground on the $18 million, 24,000-square-foot facility, which was built on a portion of an existing parking lot adjacent to the Foothill College campus, in January 2017 and finished the project in April 2019. Designed by Ratcliff Architects of Emeryville, Calif., the two-story building has office space for about 70 district administration employees, including the chancellor of the college district and employees in human resources, business services, purchasing and the district's charitable foundation.

Additionally, a connected single-story elliptical boardroom will seat up to 215 people and will be used for monthly board of trustees' meetings as well as other functions. A one-eighth inch plate steel fascia was installed to follow the elliptical shape of the boardroom's roof edge.

"I enjoy the high standard of quality and value of the different building systems," said James Mitchell, senior project manager for Alten Construction. "It is a modern Silicon Valley building with all the bells and whistles. It is a cool building, and I think it will be a fun place to work."

The facility is Net Zero Energy (NZE) ready with gently sloping roofs and metal roofing and siding. NZE ready buildings are designed to be ultra efficient with the goal of being NZE in the future.
