San Diego State University (SDSU) has chosen US-based company Clark Construction as the contractor for the Mission Valley site development project.
Clark has won the contract through a public bidding process that saw the participation of two other finalists.
SDSU stated that Clark was selected for its ‘strong’ planning and design team, understanding of the site’s complexity and competitive pricing.
The contract covers several activities such as engineering and grading the site, building site infrastructure, interior road network and utilities.
Clark will work with its engineering design partner Project Design Consultants (PDC) on this project.
The partners will also design and build 80 acres of parks and open space along with a 34-acre river park.
Ideas and feedback from the San Diego community will be taken into consideration in designing the river park.
SDSU president Adela de la Torre said: “The campus expansion at Mission Valley will be transformative for San Diego.
“The university and its partners will be building and expanding on this site for years to come, and we need to ensure that the physical foundation, and the teams helping us to lay that foundation, are strong and highly dedicated to the success of the region.”
Currently, the entire SDSU Mission Valley site’s design and planning are underway along with the preparation of the draft environmental impact report (DEIR).
The California State University Board of Trustees is expected to grant approval for the DEIR next year.
In February, Clark was selected to design and build the university’s multi-use stadium in Mission Valley.
The company will work with architect Gensler for the SDSU’s proposed multi-use stadium.
