DPR Construction has completed construction of an $8 million project at the San Diego Yacht Club.
The project included construction of new structures and sustainability enhancements to existing facilities.
The San Diego-based general contractor tore down and replaced the existing locker room building, restroom facility, junior clubhouse, maintenance building and dry storage areas.
Structures added to the yacht club include the 6,900-square-foot Malin Burnham Sailing Center, which houses youth sailing teams, the regatta manager's office, dockmaster's office, fitness and training room, a classroom and banquet event spaces.
The contractor also built a two-story, 12,160-square-foot locker room building and 2,400-square-foot maintenance building.
Other improvements included an 80-foot gangway that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, new stormwater management infrastructure and landscaping.
The project is expected to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Sustainable elements of the building include a solar hot water heater, permeable pavers that allow stormwater to filter through, natural ventilation, water conserving plumbing fixtures and efficient heating, air-conditioning and lighting systems.
"From the beginning, we were working on a tight schedule to ensure the new additions were complete prior to the busy summer boating season," said DPR Project Manager Ross Brown. "We were proud to complete the project nine days ahead of schedule and turn it over to the San Diego Yacht Club board with zero defects on the date of substantial completion."
DPR's project team included Joseph Beeson, Ross Brown, Kelly Rocha, Brett Thompson and Mike Winstead. Hanna Gabriel Wells served as the project architect.
Other consultants and designers included B&G Consultants for project management, KPFF Consulting Engineers for structural engineering, mechanical engineering firm McParlane & Associates and Nasland Engineering for civil engineering, landscape architects Nowell & Associates and Sparling | ILA Zammit for electrical engineering.
