Construction has been completed on Mt. San Jacinto College’s (MSJC) Temecula Valley Campus, marking the first permanent campus for higher education in the city. The 350k sf facility will enable MSJC to expand access to the residents of Southwest Riverside County and the surrounding communities.

The development was built by C.W. Driver Companies. The contractor partnered with 19six Architects on the MSJC Temecula Valley Campus.

MSJC is part of California’s 116 community college system. MSJC trains local residents for jobs and prepares students to earn associate degrees and transfer to four-year universities. The new campus addresses shortages in classroom space across the district.

The $60 mil project consisted of a seismic retrofit and transformation of two, five-story office buildings into a cutting-edge academic facility. Located at 41888 Motor Car Pkwy, the new 27-acre campus is equal in size to MSJC’s Menifee Valley Campus, which serves more than 15,000 students.

The school provides students access to a welcome center, veterans resource center, health center, dining hall, bookstore, career center and support services. The new campus features 22 classrooms, six science labs and five computer labs, as well as dedicated areas for faculty offices, conference rooms, a board room, collaborative spaces and study group rooms.

Previously owned by Abbott Laboratories and built in 2008, the two commercial buildings were seismically retrofit to meet DSA requirements during the first phase of construction. The scope of work included adding a total of 445 tons of structural steel to reinforce the steel columns on all five levels, in addition to reinforcing the existing foundation eight feet below the surface. Using a truck crane, the construction team carefully hoisted the structural steel members, each one measuring 30 feet long and weighing 1,500 pounds, into the building through a narrow eight-foot by six-foot window opening. The precision required to execute this task without damaging the building finishes demonstrated the team’s streamlined coordination and attention to detail.

The community college district purchased the two office buildings from Abbott Laboratories for $56 mil in 2018 to address increasing student enrollment and shortages in classroom space, specifically for courses students need to obtain an associate degree, career certificate or transfer to a four-year university. Supported by the community, the funding was provided by Measure AA, a $295-mil bond measure, which voters approved in 2014 to build and upgrade learning environments throughout the district.

MSJC is a comprehensive college serving a 1,700-square-mile area from the San Gorgonio Pass to Temecula. This Temecula Valley Campus is part of the district’s five-year plan, which also includes projects at the San Jacinto, Menifee Valley and San Gorgonio Pass campuses. C.W. Driver Companies is also the construction manager for MSJC’s STEM Science and Technology Building and the Building 200 Renovation and Addition projects (San Jacinto campus).
