Miramar Automotive Technology Career Building Expansion

June, 2010

We are about six weeks into the expansion of the Automotive Technology Career Instructional Building at Miramar, and this week was a big one for concrete work. Crews poured 195 cubic yards of concrete footings and stem walls. Stem walls are supporting structures that are utilized as means of joining the foundation of a building with the vertical walls constructed on the foundation. Along with establishing foundational integrity for the building, the stem walls also aid in minimizing damage to the materials used to create the vertical walls. The pours went very well, and the work is progressing well.

This project consists of the addition of about 6,500 SF for additional laboratories, new classrooms and increased storage areas. ADA upgrades and some minor renovations will be performed on the existing building.
