On Call Master Services Agreement for Environmental Services for Community College Capital Improvement Projects, San Bernardino County

ECORP Consulting Inc. is currently providing on-call environmental services for master planning and capital improvement projects at San Bernardino Community College District facilities. Examples of projects completed under this contract include:

 

  • Program EIR for the San Bernardino Valley College Master Plan. The Master Plan provided for the replacement of infrastructure located in a fault zone, and the expansion of facilities to accommodate student enrollment through 2030. Technical reports were prepared for biological resources, cultural resources, air quality, noise, and traffic. Program EIR services included compilation and preparation of the EIR and public outreach services, including English to Spanish translation of notices and Native American consultation.
  •  

  • Constraints Analysis, Program EIR, and Regulatory Permitting for the Crafton Hills College Master Plan. The Master Plan provided for the expansion of the college infrastructure and facilities through 2025. Constraints analyses were prepared for biological resources, jurisdictional waters, archaeological resources, and paleontologic resources. Technical reports were prepared for all of the services, which were used by the architect as a constraints analysis when preparing the Master Plan. Program EIR services included compilation and preparation of the EIR and public outreach services and the preparation of additional technical reports for air quality, noise, and traffic. ECORP also provided permitting and agency coordination services for permits with the RWQCB, ACOE, and CDFG.
  •  

  • CEQA Documentation for the Applied Technology Training Center (ATTC) Building. ECORP Consulting prepared a CEQA Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the ATTC Building in the redevelopment area at the former Norton Air Force Base. Project issues included traffic and air quality.

     

  • San Bernardino Valley College Seismic Building Replacement Project IS/MND and Historic Building Evaluation. CEQA documentation in the form of an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared for the construction of four new buildings and the demolition of four existing buildings on the San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) campus. Because two of the buildings were over 50 years in age, a historic structures evaluation for eligibility to the California Register of Historical Resources was conducted.
  •  

  • On-Call Cultural Resources Monitoring. On an as-needed basis, ECORP provided archaeology monitoring, including coordination with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the Native American monitor. Additional tasks included consultation with the County Coroner when weathered bone fragments (later identified as mammal) were encountered, supervision of laboratory analysis of recovered artifacts, consultation with faunal analysis expert, coordination with construction personnel, and attendance at construction pre-grade meetings.
  •  

  • On-Call Biological Resources Monitoring. On an as-needed basis, provided pre-construction bird surveys and monitoring for construction projects.

     

  • Bat Exclusion. Demolition of a building on the SBVC campus was scheduled to occur during bat maternity season, and it was necessary to exclude all bats from the building prior to the onset of the season by the placement of netting with one-way flaps to allow egress from the building but prevent bats from re-entering.
