SAN DIEGO, CA—Mike Conroy, Vice President of Operations for Level 10 Construction’s San Diego office, announced today the company has been named general contractor for two projects at the University of San Diego (USD) and one project at the University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego).

The two USD projects include remodeling the Manchester Conference Center (MCC) and a major alteration of Loma Hall, home to the Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering. The UC San Diego project is a renovation of Mayer Hall’s Palacci Lab for the Physical Sciences Department.

“The Level 10 project team has extensive experience in higher education projects,” said Conroy. “We have an adaptable approach that is focused on providing a high level of service to our clients while meeting their expectations for cost, schedule, quality and safety.”

Level 10 will begin tenant improvements for the USD Manchester Hall Conference Center in June, an 8,500-sq.-ft. interior tenant improvement for the departments of Career Services and Undergraduate Admissions. The project will include mechanical and electrical upgrades, as well as a modification to the building entry colonnade with an all-glass curtain wall system.
Level 10 is also providing fast-track tenant improvements to USD’s 11,654-sq.-ft. Loma Hall. The first phase of the renovation, which included tenant improvements requiring the demolition of most of the 1st floor to transform it into a showcase space for the School of Engineering, was completed February 6th.

The new Loma Hall space includes a lobby, shop area, ideation space, rapid prototyping lab and restrooms. A sound-isolation ceiling is being installed in the shop area to eliminate noise transmission to the second floor.

Level 10 is also the Design-Builder for the renovations at UC San Diego’s Mayer Hall Palacci Lab, designed for physics and laser experiments. Harley Ellis Devereaux, San Diego, is the architect.

The improvements are on schedule to be completed April 1st, under a lump-sum design-build process that is a new delivery model for UC San Diego. The Level 10 Design-Build team utilized 3-D modeling of the labs to provide stakeholders a better visualization of what their new space would look like.

The 1,300-sq.-ft. design-build project includes renovation of four existing labs on the 4th floor, encompassing the demolition of existing finishes and MEP systems, and the installation of new casework, fume hood, MEP systems, overhead UNISTRUT® equipment racks and architectural finishes.

In addition to the higher education projects, the Level 10 San Diego office is currently working on upgrades to over 500,000-sq.-ft. in three existing single-story buildings at Summit Rancho Bernardo for the Jay Paul Company. Level 10 has also recently completed the Mountain Lion Exhibit at the San Diego Zoo, and is currently working on its new Asian Leopard Exhibit
