C.W. Driver Cos. Breaks Ground on $36M Athletics Complex at Orange Coast College in California
COSTA MESA, CALIF. — C.W. Driver Cos. has broken ground on the $36 million Orange Coast College (OCC) Kinesiology and Athletics Complex in Costa Mesa. The three-building, 88,000-square-foot complex is one part of a broader project to revitalize and modernize OCC’s campus, and one of the three projects C.W. Driver is currently building for OCC.
Construction for the complex will occur in two phases. The first phase includes new construction of a multi-building, one-story complex spanning 58,000 square feet. Phase II will focus on the renovation of the existing 30,000-square-foot building that houses the men’s and women’s locker rooms and existing pool areas.
Upon delivery, the complex will feature division offices, athletic training, adaptive physical education, equipment management, locker rooms/showers, support spaces for the aquatics programs, a 65-meter competition pool with double bulkheads, a 25-meter instructional pool, and a 450-person bleacher space covered by a canopy. The buildings will be interconnected by an overhead shade structure.
Project partners include Little Diversified Architectural Consulting. This complex is one part of the broader project funded by Measure M, a $698 million general obligation bond provided and supported by the local community to construct education facilities for all three colleges that comprise Coast Community College District.
