HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.—Orange County-based Sundt Construction recently commemorated the topping out of the new Language Arts Complex at Golden West College in Huntington Beach.

When finished, the new complex will encompass 72,000 square feet of educational space across three stories. The facility will have classrooms, a resource center, offices and laboratories. HMC has handled the design elements of the project.

The facility will be energy efficient by taking advantage of the ample light of Southern California, as well as employ natural ventilation and modern LED installations.

Sundt had to take down two older buildings at the campus in order to make room for the Language Arts Complex.

The Language Arts Complex is Sundt’s third project at the campus and its fourth for the Coast Community College District. It represents the first campus project to be undertaken via the Coast Community College District’s Measure M program, which voters passed in November 2014 to support the district’s science and arts programs.

“This is an exciting milestone for the project,” Bradley Jones, Sundt’s assistant project manager, said in a recent news release. “We are happy to be one step closer to students utilizing the upgraded infrastructure.”

Sundt has worked on more than 200 college and university construction projects throughout the Golden State. In addition to Orange County, the contractor also has offices in Sacramento and San Diego. The firm has been operating for over 130 years, with other offices in Arizona, Texas, Oregon and North Carolina.
