This year ROEL Construction celebrates its 90-year anniversary and continues to thrive in the San Diego marketplace. To commemorate ROEL Construction Co.'s significant contributions to the building of San Diego and the company's 90th anniversary, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors proclaimed June 2 to be "ROEL Construction Day."
ROEL attributes its longevity to success to people, relationships and trust. While the company is well known for building many award-winning properties, ROEL provides a wide array of expertise to ensure an unparalleled client experience. Founded on integrity, quality and trust -- ROEL is San Diego's long-standing hometown builder specializing in commercial construction spanning from tenant improvements, hotel renovations, structural concrete, large-scale ground-up construction to mixed-use properties.
A testament to this ongoing dedication to client satisfaction, ROEL has eight times been awarded both the Associated General Contractor of the Year and the Large General Contractor of the Year from the American Subcontractors Association. This year, ROEL was also awarded the Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics and will now compete at a national level. Additionally, the 2007 McGraw-Hill Engineering News-Record ranked ROEL 209th amongst the nation's 400 largest general contractors. Projects in progress
Today, ROEL is embarking on many exciting new projects, including the construction of Father Joe's Villages, an affordable/work-force housing development in downtown San Diego. This 217,115-square-foot project is located on 16th and Market streets and upon completion will consist of a 12-story, 136-unit apartment building with convenient first-floor retail space and two levels of underground parking. This groundbreaking development shows Father Joe's Villages dedication to its motto -- Neighbors Helping Neighbors -- and ROEL is honored to be a part of this community outreach effort. Construction is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2008.
ROEL is also progressing on an impressive project for the new National University facility in Kearny Mesa. This diverse project consists of a 37,000-square-foot tilt-up classroom building, a 6,000-square-foot CMU aquatic center building and a 314-space pre-cast parking structure. When completed this October, the campus will offer the high standard of learning and optimal flexibility in scheduling that National University students have come to rely on.
Enthused by the success of its relationship with The Irvine Co., ROEL has expanded this partnership from Orange County into San Diego. Currently, ROEL is working on the re-imaging of two Class A office buildings downtown, located at 101 W. Broadway and 225 Broadway. ROEL looks forward to engaging in future projects with this outstanding company.
Recently completed projects
Most notably, ROEL completed construction of the award-winning W Campus for Qualcomm Inc. The project consisted of partial demolition of the existing building and tenant improvements to the remainder of the building, construction of a new central plant, a new seven-story parking structure and building WT, a 415,000-square-foot, 12-story structural steel office building with a partial basement. The new building includes over 50,000-square-foot of lab space, a fitness center and a full-service cafeteria.
Qualcomm's commitment to the environment was evident in the construction of these projects, and its Building WT was recently honored by California Construction Magazine as Best Green Building 2007. ROEL is proud to have been a part of this project and what it means to be a cleaner, more environmentally safe provider of construction services.
