[IMGCAP(1)]SAN DIEGO-Lowe Enterprises and general contractor Roel Construction top out the first two 150,000-square-foot-office buildings at the new County Operations Center in the Kearny Mesa area of San Diego, one of the few office construction projects under way in the county. The two buildings are part of a larger planned redevelopment of the 38-acre site led by Lowe Enterprises on behalf of the County of San Diego.

The new campus is expected to include 900,000 square feet of modern, efficient office space, built to LEED Silver Certification standards, along with a conference center and cafeteria and two multi-level parking structures. The project will allow the county to consolidate its operations from two sites to this new campus, according to Mike McNerney, senior vice president, Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group.

[IMGCAP(2)]The County Operations Center, located on Overland Avenue, is being developed in three phases. Phase one, currently under way, includes the development of a central plant that will provide the mechanical systems to run the entire campus, two 150,000-square-foot, four-story steel frame office buildings and a seven-level parking structure. The office buildings will feature sustainable design incorporating a variety of energy efficient, green building technologies.

Completion of the first phase of development is slated for fall 2010. Future phases of the development will include four additional 150,000-square-foot, four-story office buildings, identical to the buildings in phase one, a 20,000 square-foot conference center and cafeteria and another parking structure.

The project team also includes RJC Architects and Rossin Steel with the County of San Diego Department of General Services overseeing the project on behalf of the County Board of Supervisors.
