Griffin Structures served as construction manager for the new 56,000-square-foot Rancho Cucamonga Sports Center that serves the City’s popular youth and adult basketball and volleyball leagues. The $14 million project includes two pre-engineered steel structures–one enclosed and one open-air pavilion. The project features three indoor regulation-sized basketball/volleyball courts as well concession and public common areas, a multipurpose room, restroom facilities, and administrative office space.
The 21,500 square foot open-air structure covers 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 approximately $900,000, both in materials and schedule savings during the 14-month construction phase.
The design provides future flexibility that will allow for the installation of solar panels and the ability to enclose the pavilion, if desired, at a later date. The site also features a backup generator that will allow the facility to serve as a community emergency evacuation center. The project includes a parking lot that shares access and overflow with the adjacent Rancho Cucamonga Quakes® Minor League Baseball stadium.
