C.W. Driver Cos. has started construction of Mt. San Jacinto College’s (MSJC) Temecula Valley Campus in Temecula.
The new $43.3 million, project consists of upgrading an existing office building, creating a new campus and addressing current classroom shortages.
The building’s twin five-story, 175,000-sq.-ft. towers will be converted from office space into classrooms, laboratories and offices. The fifth floor will be entirely lab space. Other upgrades will include a kitchen, fitness center and lounges for students and faculty use.
Located at 41888 Motor Car Parkway, the first phase of the 27-acre campus includes all seismic retrofits and full build-out of three floors. The phase is slated for completion in time for the fall 2020 semester. The second phase is scheduled for completion by summer 2021.
PMSM/Nineteen Six Architects is serving as the project’s architect.
