Project Narrative

This 2-story, 22,400 ft2 educational building on Southwestern College’s National City, CA campus features classrooms, a lecture hall, four laboratories and a medical clinic. This added classroom space will enable students focusing on the Sciences to take courses at the National City campus, instead of having to travel to the Chula Vista campus. Students will gain practical, hands-on experience working at the on-site clinic.

The ConXL 400 System was easily integrated into this architecturally unique, DSA-approved project which featured cantilevered walkways and numerous elevation changes in the structural steel.
