Announcing the Certificate of Occupancy and CDPH Licensing

We are excited to announce the Certificate of Occupancy as well as CDPH Licensing for the UCSD Geriatric ED Project! This was a 10,000sf OSHPD renovation surrounded by operational healthcare services. It was an awesome journey from start to finish that can all be traced back to the teams undivided commitment toward trust. Hat’s off to Russ Onufer for his leadership, UC San Diego Health, Sandy Arbuckle, Carrie Arbuckle, Doug Stewart, KPFF Consulting Engineers, Eric Coffin, Daniel Stark, Ryan Booth, Gordon Schafer, UCSD Thornton Hospital Facilities Staff, and all of our trade partners who gave it their all!

MEP rough-in is now off to the races!

Another exciting milestone achieved at the University of California San Diego Future of Surgery Project! MEP rough-in is now off to the races! It was determined during Design Development that our teams greatest challenge would be to maintain the designed ceiling heights based on the limited interstitial space that existed in the basement of this operational academic space. In some areas, we had less than 3” of space from finish ceilings to structural deck. In fact, on paper, it was determined that it simply didn’t work. After implementing our in-house BIM process, and the strong efforts of CallisonRTKL, Randall Lamb, University Mechanical & Engineering Contractors, Inc. (CA), Standard Drywall Inc., and KM Consulting Group LLC we were able to re-position and re-design MEP Systems that allowed us to retain the desired ceiling heights for our client, increase trade productivity, and avoid system clashes that occur when a traditional coordination process is used. Way to go Adrian Campos. This is how you Build Together!

CREW Summer Social

Thank you to all that attended the annual CREW Summer Social last Thursday! We enjoyed live music, Hodad’s burgers and great company! Align Builders donated a surfboard  for the raffle to support the CREW Foundation!  Big shout out to Ryan Sakal of the Aryse Company (www.arysecompany.com) who shaped this board!  Bree Wong of SWS Engineering and President of CREW San Diego was the proud recipient of the raffle.  Couldn’t have been a better person to land it! As she put it “what a bad-ass prize!”
