Doing Business


BID OPPORTUNITY - Outreach Webinar

The Career Education Complex is the flagship project of the San José Evergreen Community College District’s Measure X Bond Program. The project is divided into 2 phases. Phase 1 is the modernization of Building 200 which is a 35,000 SF rectangular shaped building with high-bay industrial labs facing north and classrooms facing south. Phase 2 is a new Career Education Building around 91,000 SF. This project will unify the two structures to feel like a single complex.

This outreach webinar will focus on the District's outreach goals set in 2018 and provide bidding opportunities for subcontractors with Flint Builders for this project. 

When: June 16, 2021 @ 10:00AM Registration is required.
