Old Administration Building

Fresno City College

$65 Million

Designed by California State Architect George MacDougall and built in 1916, OAB was the first permanent structure on the Fresno State Normal School Campus and later Fresno City College, California’s first community college. In 1974, OAB was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, but it closed only two years later due to new seismic regulations. The renovation brought the facility back to its original glory, hiding virtually all structural work behind original or replicated interior finishes. The hand-crafted Roman brick was cleaned and original materials, such as the clay roof tiles, decorative wood eaves, and wood windows, were restored. ELS also refurbished the interiors, keeping the original layout in more than 90% of the structure. As a result of the renovation, Fresno City College has been able to expand academic courses, performing arts education, and student services, revitalizing the heart of the campus.
