Construction Booms at Area Colleges, Universities

In this year’s continuing construction slump in which only a handful of new housing developments are under way and the commercial sector is nearly moribund, there’s one bright star — more than $1.6 billion in public college and university building projects under way with hundreds of millions more on tap for the next few years.

One such project is the Palomar College Planetaruim and Multimedia Lab, being built by Swinerton Builders San Diego. Planetarium director Mark Lane said the 1965 facility at the San Marcos campus is being replaced to double the capacity to 150 visitors or students and make the space suitable for teaching. Public shows are held monthly and as many 5,000 school children from the region visit annually.
