Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 15, 2009 11A Feather River :ollege fin, Is new use fc00r old building, Feather River College un- dertook a massive endeavor July 7, when the former Chester Center building was moved from Chester to the Quincy campus and installed as the new field house for the softball team. According to Nick Boyd, director of facilities, the move was almost a full year in the making, "It was Cameron Abbot, our former director of human re- sources, who first saw the potential for this building. He proposed that we hold FRC classes in Chester at the high school and bring the building to Quincy to better utilize the space and resolve a Title 9 issue. This action was approved by the FRC board of trustees last October and we have been working on it ever since." The move Was a huge un- dertaking, requiring three semi trucks and trailers, one for each section of the build- ing. Because of the size and height of the buildings they couldn't be moved down Highway 89, so they were taken from Chester through Susanville to 395 South and then back to Quincy on Highway 70. Once they arrived at FRC the sections were unloaded and assembled on the pad that was built and prepared by the facilities crew. Hopefully, the new field house will be completely ready for the softball team by this fall. To prepare for the move the FRC facilities team had to work closely with the Chester Community Services Dis- trict, PG&E and the Plumas Unified School District. One of the biggest issues the team faced was that the main power supply for a PUSD site was routed through the Chester Center, so the problem had to be re- solved before final moving plans could be made. The facilities crew began the process of getting the cen- ter ready to move in March, and finalized the preparation i.n late June. This action resolves one of FRC's Title 9 discrepancies by providing a facility for the women equal to the men's field house. Once completed it will house a locker room, coaches' offices, a laundry fa- cility and a spot for the ath- letic trainers to work.
