Officials cut the ribbon on the new Los Medanos College campus in Brentwood this week.

Los Medanos College opened its Brentwood Center campus at 1351 Pioneer Square with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, May 4.

“A permanent location for the Los Medanos College Brentwood Center has been years in the planning, and today we ceremoniously perform the ribbon cutting for this site of educational and career opportunities for thousands of East County students for decades to come,” said LMC President Dr. Bob Kratochvil.

The 17.5-acre property was purchased by the Contra Costa Community College District in 2011. Ratcliff Architects designed the new campus, and Balfour Beatty Construction built it. At 55,000 square feet, it is more than double the size of the former, leased Brentwood location that LMC had occupied. The construction budget was about $65 million, and was funded by Bond measures A, passed in 2006, and E, passed in 2014.
