Bomel Construction Breaks Ground on 3 Parking Structures

June 16, 2006

Anaheim Hills , California -- Bomel Construction Co., Inc., Southern California's largest builder of parking structures, has broken ground on three projects with a cumulative construction cost of more than $55 million.

The most demanding of the projects for the Anaheim Hills-based contractor may be a 1,211-space garage for Valley View Casino in northern San Diego County. "We'll be on an aggressive 35-week schedule," said Bomel's Project Executive, Mike Lucio. "But we'll get it done on time or ahead of schedule." The $16.6 million parking structure is part of a $100 million expansion that will more than double the size of the 47,000-sq. ft. casino. The six-level parking structure is scheduled to be completed in November; the 58,000-sq. ft. casino expansion is slated to be finished next year. The Irvine office of International Parking Design is the architect for the parking structure.

Farther south in the county, Bomel Construction has begun a 1,419-space garage for the University of California, San Diego. Bomel will be working as a subcontractor to the project's general contractor, San Diego-based Douglas E. Barnhart, Inc. The project's architect is San Francisco-based Esherick, Hamsey, Dodge and Davis. The seven-level parking structure is expected to meet parking demands of several new capital projects, including the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Building and the Computer Science and Engineering Building. The structure will also meet student parking requirements resulting from increased enrollment, as well as provide much-needed parking capacity for evening events held at the Recreation Intramural Athletic and Event Center. The $26.1 million parking structure is scheduled to be completed in December.

And in Thousand Oaks, Bomel has begun building a six-level parking structure for Amgen, a leading human therapeutics company in the biotechnology industry. Bomel is a subcontractor to the project's general contractor, Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Co. of Los Angeles. The 1,651-space garage, Amgen's eighth parking structure, is scheduled to be finished in February 2007. Amgen declined to disclose the construction cost. The architect is Parkitects, Inc. of Irvine, California.

Established 36 years ago in Anaheim, California, Bomel Construction Co. is one of the largest concrete contractors in the United States. Bomel Construction is a family run, $250 million business with more than 525 employees working throughout the Southwest.
