Builder Garners Award for Center at City College

The Southern California Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America honored Santa Clarita Valley company Lundgren Management with a Project Achievement Award at the chapter’s 27th Annual Awards Gala, held at Hyatt Regency Long Beach on May 15. This award was given for the construction company’s work on the Santa Barbara City College West Campus Center, which saw completion on budget in January 2018. Valencia-based Lundgren, with additional offices in the Inland Empire and Central Valley, provides a full palette of construction and project management services. Construction Management Association of America’s Project Achievement Award candidates are judged on specific criteria, which contribute to the project’s overall score. Construction management innovations and contributions hold 30 percent scoring weight, quality of management holds 40 percent and project outcomes hold 30 percent. With the West Campus Center in Santa Barbara, Lundgren delivered a 33,610-square-foot multi-story facility with 23 traditional and studio-style classrooms, 15 faculty offices, conference and break rooms. In addition to the Project Achievement Award, the U.S. Green Business Council recognized the Santa Barbara City College West Campus Center with the LEED Platinum certification. This became the second award given to a project designed by architect Kruger Bensen Ziemer Architects Inc., which has offices in Ventura and Santa Barbara, and managed by Lundgren Management. “What we were able to accomplish in collaboration with our project partners and the Santa Barbara Community College is something to be proud of,” said Lundgren Vice President of Program and Client Services Shawn Fonder in a statement. “We are honored to be a part of the district’s effort to provide its growing student population with new and renovated facilities. We would like to thank CMAA Southern California for this wonderful honor.” In hindsight, Fonder attributed team effort to the completion and quality of the project. “The entire stakeholder team worked collectively through open lines of communication early on and maintained communication through completion,” said Fonder. “The end result is a state-of-the-art facility that students and others in the greater Santa Barbara Community can be proud of.”
