    The Kinesiology & Wellness Center (KWC) at Cañada College is one of the very first progressive design-build projects to be undertaken by a California Community College District. A long-established campus of SMCCCD, Cañada College is located on a beautiful woodland site with breathtaking views. This LEED Gold-certified wellness and kinesiology center is a central hub for movement studies, competitive sports, and fitness, as well as, a sustainable, flagship building that is highly visible from the nearby freeway and marks the campus’ southern entrance.

    This event begins with a presentation of the project by  ELS Architecture and Urban Design and Blach Construction. They will discuss the project program, design concepts, design-build project delivery, and strategies utilized to achieve LEED Gold certification.   Following the presentation, attendees will break up into two smaller groups for a tour the building and site with project team members. The program will offer attendees an in-depth opportunity to learn about the design and construction of this award-winning, design-built, higher-education wellness building facility.
