Sundt Awarded Contract Expansion on Pima County Court Complex

Sundt Construction, Inc. has begun the second phase of construction on the new Pima County Downtown Court Complex. Originally contracted in February 2012 to complete the core and shell of the 290,000 SF facility, Sundt was recently granted a contract expansion to make tenant improvements, construct a parking structure and complete landscape and hardscape updates.
Sundt is serving as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) for the $37M in improvements, $22M of which includes improvements on floors two, three, four, five and seven. In addition, Sundt will build an adjacent seven-level, 700-car parking structure with an 8,400 SF retail shell fronting the new Stone Avenue public plaza, which is budgeted at $15M.
“The Pima County Downtown Court Complex has required detailed and specific planning, starting with the complex foundation pour from the first phase of the project,” said Sundt Project Director Kurt Wadlington. “This second phase requires careful coordination of interior build-out, adjacent foundation systems and multiple utilities that cross the site.”
Housing the Pima County Justice Courts and Pima County public service offices, the seven-level complex includes a distinctive dichromic glass mural on the south wall that was paid for using a separate public art budget. The mural will be illuminated at night for an attractive addition to the Tucson skyline. Sundt anticipates this second phase will be completed in early 2015.

Sundt Construction Breaks Ground on CGCC Campus

Construction is underway on a new student services and athletics facility at Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s Pecos Campus that will serve as a gathering place for the community, Sundt Construction announced Monday.

Sundt was hired as the construction manager at risk (CMAR) for the $21M project, which includes a new two-story multi-purpose building, upgraded sidewalks, landscaping, concrete benches and parking lot renovations. The 70,000 SF building will include a “one-stop” student services area, a 2,500-seat arena surrounding a 10,000 SF gymnasium, fitness center, athletic offices and locker rooms, classrooms and testing facilities, administration offices and conference rooms.

“This project is not only significant for the students and faculty of Chandler-Gilbert Community College but also for the community as a whole,” said Sundt Project Manager Chris Tinney. “With the large amount of space in the arena, the community will have a place to come together for special events and athletic competitions. It will serve as the front door to the college, in terms of location, appearance and function.”

The Coyote Center’s innovative design, which includes raised access flooring and movable partitions, will allow the college to adjust its space to the rapidly changing technology associated with higher education. Other features include taping and treatment areas with hydrotherapy and an expansive performance area, featuring a four-lane, 60-meter sprint track and other turf areas for outdoor training.

The Pecos Campus is located at 2626 E. Pecos Rd. in Chandler.
