San Diego Miramar College kicked off the fall 2012 semester with an exciting celebration: the grand opening of its new Library/ Learning Resource Center, which was built by Sundt under a $23.2 Construction Manager Multiple Prime contract.
Ursula Kroemer, the project’s Communications Manager, was thrilled about how the building came out: “I’m so excited at the transformation of the campus – it’s really just remarkable and wonderful!”
The three-story, 105,000-square-foot building includes a 236-seat auditorium, classrooms, a computer lab and library. The adjacent central quad consists of landscaped areas and circular concrete pathways that mimic an aviation navigational tool – an homage to the site’s former use as an airfield. The building core is structural steel; a mix of plaster and stone veneer makes up the exterior.
The higher education project is aiming for LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
