Sundt is nearing completion of its first project for the Coast Community College District: the Orange Coast College Interdisciplinary Complex in Costa Mesa, California.
The 78,000-square-foot math, business and computing complex includes 35 administrative offices, a 200-station open computer lab, 11 computer teaching labs for mixed use, nine lecture classrooms for business and computing courses, 15 mathematics lecture classrooms, two meeting rooms and a workroom, lounge and study areas.
The project team, led by Senior Project Manager Conrad Benitez, used a number of innovative approaches and technologies to make the project a success.
“We used 3D models to show them what the paths of travel would look like with all of the piping and ductwork in, and then compared that to other possible scenarios with fewer obstructions,” Conrad said. “Being able to see the end result before it was built and talk through modifications together made a big impact on the facilities team.”
