Construction of new single story 52,240 s.f. building for the Department of Public and Social Services in Moreno Valley. Tenant build-out includes: conference rooms, cubicle farms, restrooms, offices, lobby, and various work station rooms.
Oltmans was awarded another build-to-suit in the Douglas Park Business District in Long Beach. The new project involved a 142,000 s.f., concrete tilt-up post-secondary educational training facility for Universal Technical Institute. The project sits atop a 7.13-acre lot, featuring classrooms with the latest data and network instruction techniques, administrative offices and a large multi-purpose room for graduations. The laboratories provide engine dynos, alignment testing, car racks and transmission dynos. The electrical and mechanical systems to support the above include compressed air throughout the labs, carbon exhaust systems, and state-of-the-art power and data outlets to connect all mechanic devices.

Quinn’s new and expanded operations facility was built to better serve their
customers throughout the Los Angeles area. A major challenge for this project was
designing and constructing a single building that allowed for the consolidation of
their various service components such as administrative operations, repair, sales
and training, which were prior to construction, separated into several detached
buildings. The new facility needed to be sustainable, economical, and highly
efficient. Through the collaborative effort by Quinn Group, HPA Architects, and
Oltmans Construction Co., the project came to fruition in the form of this turn-
key, 234,100 s.f., 2-story, concrete tilt-up, “one-stop-shop”, commercial facility.
The newly constructed building houses a full-service Parts and Sales Area,
HR/Training Center, Service Operation Office Area, Parts Warehouse, Heavy Equipment
Shop, and Component Rebuild Center (CRC).The CRC includes a Welding Machine Shop
and a Dynamometer Engine Testing Room & Equipment Area. A technical component of
the project was providing a system that would support the needs of the dynamometer
or “dyno” machine, which is considered one of the largest owned by Quinn. The new
support system involved the construction of an underground water tank, which feeds
a cooling tower that was installed adjacent to the CRC building solely for the
purpose of the dyno machine. In addition, the Heavy Equipment Shop and CRC
warehouses have26 Overhead and Jib Cranes that are used for lifting and moving
large CAT equipment. An effective exterior and interior rail system was installed
into the concrete foundation to facilitate the transportation of equipment to shop
areas. Also, constructed on-site were two (2) additional stand alone buildings: the
Wash Building, a covered area for cleaning equipment and the Transportation
Building, an office area for security and controlling of their equipment yard.
Sustainable/green building components were included in the design and construction
of the project. The project was built to the requirements of LEED Gold utilizing
the following green components:
•722 kW rooftop solar
•High efficiency glazing systems
•Two on-site clarifiers approximately 2,000 gallons each that separates oil and
water prior to draining into the sewer system
•25 recirculating large diameter fans
•Completely insulated facility with single-ply roof
•Energy efficient mechanical systems
•Installation of rooftop solar panels
•Open space design
•Drought tolerant landscaping
Size of Project: 21 acres
