Bond Work Group (BWG)
The Purpose of the Bond Work Group (BWG)
The LAVC Bond Work Group (BWG), formerly called the Facilities Master Plan Committee, oversees campus-wide improvement decisions at the college in relation to the voter-supported Bond A/AA and Measure J. Comprised of faculty, staff, administration and construction project management, the group is responsible for reviewing expenditures, policies regarding campus-wide infrastructure, facilities and the college’s master plan. This group meets twice a month.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where can I find the latest info on our construction/renovation projects?
LAVC maintains a reVitalizing Valley College Web site that provides information and updates on the college’s construction or renovation projects. In addition, each project is has a BUG (or Building User Group) to discuss and approve all aspects of a particular construction/renovation project. Specific questions or concerns may be brought to a project's BUG Administrator or BUG Leader.
What is a BUG?
A BUG (or Building User Group) comprised of a group of faculty, staff and administrators who work together with the construction program manager, Yang Management, on each of the college’s new construction or renovation projects. Under the guidance of Yang Management, which oversees all consultants, contractors and architects, the BUG also works with program architects to assist them with needs assessment and space utilization plans.
Why do we have BUGs?
BUGs are part of LAVC's shared-governance system, whereby all campus constituencies are represented in major decision-making processes. A BUG (or Building User Group) is formed for each of LAVC’s new planned facilities and for structures scheduled for modernization. Each project is assigned a BUG Administrator and a BUG Leader to oversee progress of BUG and work with the assigned construction project manager. BUG members represent their colleagues and meet regularly to discuss and approve all aspects of a particular construction/renovation project.
Who can I contact if I have questions about a project?
