Pacific Building Group recently completed five new construction projects spanning more than 250,000 square feet countywide. From Chula Vista to Carlsbad, the projects underscore the 33-year-old general contracting firm’s industry expertise, which includes construction for corporate, biotech, defense and hospitality companies.
“We completed these projects in occupied environments with serious security considerations and without interrupting the workflow of our clients,” says Jim Roherty, president of Pacific Building Group. “Our clients continued with business as usual, which saved them the time, headache and cost of temporarily relocating. In the end, they’ve maintained productivity and have upgraded workspaces to boot.”
Frontera Business Park: Located in Chula Vista, the $3.5 million, 140,000 square-foot project included improvements across seven buildings. Interior improvements included the demolition of existing spaces and the construction of new walls, tenant build-outs, warehouses, electrical, HVAC systems and roll-up doors.
Other highlights included new exterior paint, large illuminated signage, monuments, new irrigation and the planting of native and low-water use plants throughout. The architect was Ware Malcomb.
General Atomics A21: The construction undertaking included a new 10,000 square-foot ground-up building, improvements to an existing 78,000 square-foot space including improved common areas and amenities and a new epoxy floor system, a 2,300 square-foot mezzanine, the installation of an eight-ton crane system, and the installation and coordination of specialized booths and infrastructure used in General Atomics’ manufacturing process. The architect was DGA.
Lite Machines: This $1 million project meant a total office makeover for the Carlsbad-based company. Among tenant improvements were a 4,500 square-foot research and production area and a large warehouse. Other improvements to the eco-friendly building included oversized skylights and solatubes for abundant natural light, improved flooring, an extensive compressed air and power distribution system and a specialized HVAC and security surveillance system. Outside, the company installed a newly-completed soaring aluminum-clad entry cornice, attractive landscaping and more. The architect was Ware Malcomb.
NXP Semiconductors: Located in Sorrento Valley, this 15,000 square-foot, $1.7 million project included the completion of improved office and lab space in just six-and-one-half weeks after the permit was issued. During the project, Pacific Building Group met heavy mechanical and electrical demands to accommodate the heating and cooling requirements specific to each lab in the building. The architect was Smith Consulting Architects.
