Orange Coast College Recycling Center
The Orange Coast College (OCC) Recycling Center embodies the long-standing culture of sustainability so important to the campus and the greater Costa Mesa community. The Center is student operated, providing student jobs and scholarships, student leadership training, and funds in support of student services. Dougherty has collaborated with students, staff and Campus and District representatives through strategic master planning, programming, design and construction to replace the previous undersized facility. This high-performance and highly visible project is on track for multiple sustainable certifications, and is the first project to be completed under Bond Measure M.
