Student Housing, Various for Bond Program
Market and Demand Analysis
Site Evaluation (in association with an architecture firm)
A $248 million bond measure was passed in 2018 by the voters of San Benito and Santa Clara Counties called Measure X, which is intended to fund improvements and capital projects for the Gavilan Joint Community College District. A new state-of-the-art Library and Student Resource Center will replace the aging library and incorporate student service functions and additional administrative offices into one location. In addition, the bond funds will help provide a new campus in San Benito County on District-owned property as well as upgrade classrooms and repair aging facilities and utility systems at the Gilroy Campus, in turn helping improve local access to affordable education.
Volz Company provides Program Management for the Measure X Bond Program as a whole, overseeing and maintaining the master schedule, master bond budgets, managing the procurement of construction and consulting services, producing quarterly financial reports for the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee, and providing administrative support services for all projects pursued using Measure X resources. Volz Company also manages the completion of yearly audits to ensure the funds are being expended appropriately and legally only for voter-approved activities.
In 2023, exercising our expertise in program management and real estate advisory services, Volz Company, in association with an architecture firm and a cost estimator, led Gavilan through a full Feasibility Planning process for affordable student housing involving a Market and Demand Analysis, Financial Analysis, Preliminary Design, Cost Estimate, and Site Evaluation. The process required extensive qualitative and quantitative research that entailed but was not limited to, stakeholder engagement, student focus groups, off-campus market analysis, online surveys, and financial analyses.
Currently, our team is advising on the College’s Grant writing and submission to potentially fund the new proposed three-story $62 million affordable student housing project located on the Gavilan College main campus.
