PCL Construction wins pair of Design-Build Institute awards

PCL Construction, a general contractor on the San Diego International Airport's Green Build project, was recently awarded two Design-Build Institute of America awards for recent projects.

The awards were given to the contractor on May 22 at the Western Pacific Region Design-Build Awards Banquet in Newport Beach.

PCL received the Merit Award for the University Student Union at California State University, San Marcos, and the Distinction Award for the Green Build Terminal Expansion at the airport. The airport project included a three-story, 460,000-square-foot expansion of Terminal 2 with 10 new gates, twice as many security lanes, expanded concessions, and 1.5 million square feet of new taxiway and jet parking. PCL completed the project as part of a joint venture with Turner Construction Co. and Flatiron Construction Corp.

The $43.9 million student union at CSUSM is a four-story, 89,000-square-foot building that includes new dining, an open-air amphitheater, a student activity center, a rooftop garden and patio, and a ballroom. It was designed to achieve LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, while the airport's Green Build has been awarded LEED Platinum status.
