Construction Roundup: Fire Station No. 2, Tech HQs and More…

By Dean Petersen & Steven Gorup

2016 is off to a great start and we’re making progress on some cool new projects around the region. Here’s a look at what the Hughes Marino Construction Management team has been up to.

Matt Renault and Dave Bates are wrapping up work on the Jewish Family Service of San Diego’s Joan & Irwin Jacobs Campus in Kearny Mesa. The main entry trellis has been built signifying the final stages of this important project. When complete, the facility will also feature a new commercial kitchen, server room, and solar panels. With only a few more weeks of construction on the site, JFS has moved into both remodeled buildings and is looking forward to the completion of the project to better provide their critical services. HMCM is proud to be a part of the team for this project that is so important to the community.

Next month, Dave Bates and Zane Keith will kick off construction on the new Bayside Fire Station No. 2 in Little Italy. We are thrilled to have the privilege of working with the City of San Diego on this project, along with Civic San Diego and the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Barnhart-Reese has been selected as the qualified low bidder. The $14.61 million, three-story, 15,980 square foot fire station designed by architect Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA will be located at the southeast corner of Pacific Highway and Cedar Street. The fire station will be constructed over a single level of 8,970 square feet below-grade parking, and include a landscaped “green” roof, photovoltaic cells, and other sustainable features. As a highly publicized project intended to add architectural flair to Little Italy, we at Hughes Marino are proud to play a role in the construction of this future San Diego landmark.

Work is also slated to begin this month on a 40,000 square foot tenant improvement project for Tealium in Torrey Pines, led by Dean Petersen and Matt Renault. ID Studios has been selected as the architect, with preliminary designs that will transform a long-vacant building at the end of Torreyana Road into Tealium’s corporate headquarters. Tealium’s future space will have a Silicon Valley-like tech environment, featuring an open office design with plenty of space for staff to interact in the oversized lounge/break area, along with multiple casual meeting areas. The facility will also include gaming rooms, eye-popping architectural details, and a boardroom featuring iconic, whitewater views of Torrey Pines State Beach.

Hughes Marino CM was honored to work on a 90,000 square foot office, lab and manufacturing expansion for Nordson Asymtek, which Nik Bandak recently completed in Carlsbad. A large portion of the project consisted of a manufacturing area equipped with utility drops housing electrical outlets and data ports accompanied by nearby compressed-air drops. Adjacent to the manufacturing area, a warehouse and shipping/receiving section is lined with high-pile racking storage and an upgraded sprinkler system. Office spaces and conference rooms are strategically located next to specialized lab spaces and showrooms to showcase new products using a custom fabricated utility chase.

Up in Orange County, Matt Renault and Steven Gorup are leading a 7,500 square foot tenant improvement project for CoStar at 3161 Michelson Drive, which is scheduled to complete in March. This is HMCM’s second project with CoStar, acting as boots on the ground and providing local knowledge and management to the company’s real estate and construction team based in Washington, DC.

Also up in Orange County, Matt Renault and Steven Gorup are leading a 30,000 square foot tenant improvement project for MobilityWare, the mobile games company whose award-winning portfolio includes Solitaire, Blackjack, Freecell, and Spider Solitaire. Recently named one of 2015’s best places to work in Orange County, their new corporate headquarters will be as amazing as their games. Featuring a largely open plan and several collaborative huddle and scrum rooms, it will be capped off by an incredible break room where employees can play a game of pool, ping pong or foosball while enjoying catered lunches and a fully stocked snack bar. We are thrilled to be a part of this team!

Further north in El Segundo, we’re pleased to have completed another project for The Enthusiast Network. Led by Steven Gorup, the 10,000 square foot expansion of Mind Over Eye, a division of TEN, included an open structure, sealed concrete floors, sever room expansion, benching work stations, a viewing room and numerous editing bays. This is the third project we have managed for TEN, and we thoroughly enjoy working with the amazing team at this Emmy-nominated, multi-platform creative agency!

That’s it for this month. Check back again soon for more updates from the Hughes Marino Construction Management team.
