Balfour Beatty Construction serves as construction manager on the recently completed $61M
Riverside City College School of Nursing & Math and Science Complex.

Riverside, CA, February 10, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Officials from Riverside City College, construction
manager Balfour Beatty Construction, project partners, community leaders and students gathered on
Thursday, February 9, 2012 to mark the completion of the College's new School of Nursing & Math and
Science Complex. The 132,000-SF facility provides additional educational space for the nursing, math
and science programs at the existing campus.

The $61.1-million state-of-the-art complex is seeking LEED® certification. The facility includes a
37,000-SF two-story northwest wing which will accommodate the nursing program, including a virtual
hospital suite equipped with Human Patient Simulators that can provide training experiences in areas
including childbirth, heart attacks, and strokes. This wing also includes clinical skills lecture suites,
lecture halls, 22 classrooms, a teleconference room as well as student and faculty lounges and faculty

The 95,000-SF four-story southeast wing houses the math and science programs and features lecture
halls; support offices; organic, biology, and chemistry laboratories; and study spaces. The project also
includes the construction of a central plant that provides site utilities, mechanical and electrical equipment
and controls, as well as chilled water for air conditioning to the complex.

“Two of the exciting aspects of this project are that it brings state-of-the-art technology into the
classrooms and laboratories, and opens up more opportunities for all students,” said Riverside City
College President Cynthia Azari. “Nursing students will train on the same generation of equipments used
in the workplace. General science students will work in sophisticated and expanded laboratories for
chemistry, mathematics, physical sciences, and life sciences. The new facilities also will offer current
professionals opportunities for continuing education and advance skills development.”

The project was funded by the State of California and RCCD's Measure C bond, approved by voters in
2004, and supported by the RCCD Foundation.

Balfour Beatty Construction provided construction management multi-prime services for the project and
GKK Works of Irvine provided architectural and design services.

“Our team was especially proud to work on this important project that will provide students access to
sophisticated technology that will lead directly to saving lives,” said Eric Stenman, Regional CEO for
Balfour Beatty Construction.

Members of the Balfour Beatty Construction team included Chris Moseley, vice president; Larry Caprio,
CCM, senior project manager; John Atherton, LEED® AP, superintendent; Tim Milam, superintendent;
Eric Sierra, LEED® AP, project engineer; Cory Barnhart, field engineer and Donna Squillace, project
