C.W. Driver Starts Construction of $43.3M Mt. San Jacinto College Temecula Valley Campus in California
TEMECULA, CALIF. — C.W. Driver Cos., as general contractor, has started construction of Mt. San Jacinto College’s (MSJC) new $43.3 million, 350,000-square-foot Temecula Valley Campus in Temecula.
The project consists of a seismic retrofit and tenant improvement of an existing office building, creating a new campus and addressing current classroom shortages. The building’s twin five-story, 175,000-square-foot towers will be converted from office space into classrooms, laboratories and offices to serve MSJC students. The fifth floor will be entirely lab space. Other upgrades will include a kitchen, fitness center and lounges for students and faculty use.
Located at 41888 Motor Car Parkway, the first phase of the 27-acre campus includes all seismic retrofits and full build-out of three floors. The phase is slated for completion in time for the fall 2020 semester. The second phase is scheduled for completion by summer 2021. PMSM/Nineteen Six Architects is serving as architect for the project.
MSJC acquired the property from Abbot Laboratories with Measure AA facilities bond funds, which were approved to fund improvements to existing facilities and purchase new assets to accommodate increasing student enrollment.
