Griffin Structures served as construction manager for the new 56,000 SF Rancho Cucamonga Sports Center that serves the City’s popular youth and adult basketball and volleyball leagues. The $14M project included two pre-engineered steel structures–one enclosed and one open-air pavilion. The project featured three indoor regulation-sized basketball/volleyball courts as well as concession and public common areas, a multipurpose room, restroom facilities, and administrative office space.
The 21,500 SF open-air structure covered an additional three full-size outdoor basketball courts, protecting players and spectators from the sun and heat. The pre-engineered metal building design resulted in savings of over $900,000, both in materials and schedule savings during the 14-month construction phase.
The design provided future flexibility that allowed for the installation of solar panels and the ability to enclose the pavilion, if desired, at a later date. The site also featured a backup generator that allowed the facility to serve as a community emergency evacuation center. The project included a parking lot that shares access and overflow with the adjacent Rancho Cucamonga Quakes® Minor League Baseball stadium.
