An $8.5-million project rising at Avenida Rancho Carmel and Carmel Mountain Road in Carmel Mountain Ranch, San Diego, is demonstrating the application of concrete tilt-up construction--long used in industrial building but usually for one- and two-story structures--to a medical clinic.
The 88,134-square-foot Scripps Clinic is being built on a 4.46-acre site off Interstate 15 east of Rancho Penasquitos by Koll Construction Co., with completion expected in the fall. It is being developed by Coast Income Properties of La Jolla for R. B. Income Properties.
The design, by the Austin-Hansen-Fehlman Group of San Diego, includes five pyramidally topped towers. That factor, the complicated construction procedure and the restricted size of the site has put a premium on construction management services controlling the scheduling, according to Koll's project manager, Mike Kubota.
