mccarthy2.jpgThe scope of work for McCarthy includes related site work, which will entail landscaping, installation of irrigation systems, and significant rerouting of existing utilities.
With the construction site for the new parking structure being on an active hospital campus, the project poses some significant ingress/egress issues as well as subcontractor scheduling challenges, said McCarthy Project Director Robert Betz. We're in the process of devising a plan with Scripps Health that will allow us to work within the construction area in a manner that will minimize disruption to ongoing traffic and activities at the hospital during construction."
It is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete grading and excavation for the parking structure before structural work begins.
International Parking Design is the architect-of-record. Jessen-Wright is the structural engineer, E3 Design Group is the electrical engineer, B&P Associates is the mechanical engineer, and Latitude 33 is serving as the civil engineer. M.W. Peltz & Associates is the landscape architect.
