Catholic school will replace student center destroyed in 2017 California wildfire

20 July 2021

Cardinal Newman High School in Santa Rosa, Calif., has broken ground to replace campus facilities destroyed in a 2017 wildfire.

The two-story, 24,000-square-foot Student Life Center and Library, will replace the previous library and media center, the Catholic school says in a news release.

Much of the Cardinal Newman campus was destroyed in the 2017 Tubbs Fire, a wildfire that severely damaged parts of Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties in Northern California.

The new facility has been designed to mimic a modern college student union. It has an innovation lab, digital media lab, restrooms and support spaces.

It also provides spaces that were not part of the previous building: an indoor cafeteria and full-service kitchen, student lounge and conference and group study rooms.

Sustainable features include energy-efficient lighting and mechanical systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, drought-tolerant landscaping, bioswales and operable windows.
