In 1995, Alten Construction completed its very first project, a 23-bathroom renovation for the College of Alameda, Laney College and Merritt College, part of the Peralta Community College District.
"It is incredibly fulfilling to return to our first project after 28 years," said Bob Alten, president and CEO of Alten Construction. "We've come a long way since we first started, and we're proud to be one of the most well-respected general contractors in the area."
Located at 555 Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway, the mission of College of Alameda is to serve the educational needs of its diverse community by providing comprehensive and flexible programs and resources that empower students to achieve their goals. The school serves over 6,000 unduplicated students every semester from the San Francisco Bay Area.
"College of Alameda is looking forward to this new transportation technology facility, which will enable the Automotive Technology, Auto Body and Paint and Diesel Mechanics departments to provide excellent learning and teaching opportunities to our students and to the community," said Dr. Diana Bajrami, acting president for College of Alameda. "This new building will bring students a step closer to living wage employment and well prepared for earning a baccalaureate degree in other advanced schools of technology in preparation for future management and teaching careers in the automotive industry and diesel mechanics industry. We are so glad to partner with Alten construction as we value their commitment to green building practices and their service to COA/PCCD."
