Set on a five-acre site in Huntington Beach Central Park, the $21.5 million center includes a variety of spaces to provide educational, counseling, entertainment, social outlets and opportunities for the City’s senior population.
The project began with a vacant site in the City’s 343-acre Central Park. Construction activities included site clearing, grading, utility services connections, vertical structures, landscape, hardscape, and intersection improvements. Griffin was responsible for construction management; inspection; bidding assistance; contract administration; constructability review; value engineering; processing RFI’s, submittals, progress payments and change orders; quantity verification; quality control; monitoring the contractor’s schedule and safety program; coordinating materials testing; and documenting the work.
The 37,565 square foot facility features a fitness room, group exercise and dance rooms, and versatile classrooms that accommodate educational and arts and crafts activities. The Senior Center also includes indoor and outdoor gathering spaces as well as a transportation passenger lounge and loading/unloading areas for the City’s door-to-door Seniors on the Go transportation network. A commercial kitchen provides for the preparation of weekday meals at the Senior Center as well as meals for home-bound seniors.
