Tight Timeline Met on LEED Project

Swinerton Builders San Diego recently wrapped up work on the SDGE CP Annex project much to the satisfaction of a valued repeat client. Set on a very aggressive 12-week schedule, the project team finished the tenant improvement project on time and on budget. Featuring beautiful reclaimed wood accents, it was built to LEED Certified standards.

Located in Kearny Mesa near SDGE’s main Century Park campus, the project was designed by DGA. The existing office building was nearly gutted before the project team mobilized, but some light demo was performed in preparation for the build-out. Working on two-thirds of the ground floor, the space was completely transformed. Featuring an open ceiling entryway with attractive reclaimed wood baffles, many custom features were brought in, including modular walls, system furniture, and flooring. New finishes helped bring new life to the office, while the MEP system was fully upgraded. Swinerton’s Drywall division lent their assistance by self-performing the drywall, insulation, and ACT scopes of work.

The project achieved its LEED certification thanks to the heavy use of reclaimed wood. Energy saving equipment, including dimming controlled lighting, was utilized as well. Commissioning points were also gained, along with points for waste management practices and an IEQ plan for air quality. Low-emitting materials were also used, 67% of existing materials were recycled, and 20% recycled material content was used.
