New Headquarters In San Diego

Old Town State Historic Park commemorates the origins of the City of San Diego.  Dating back to early Spaniard settlements in 1769, it has become one of the city’s most festive and most visited attractions.  Today’s Old Town recreates the setting of California life during the Mexican and early American periods of the 18th century.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 11, which serves both San Diego and Imperial counties, has been part of the Old Town scene since the early 50s. As part of a 19-acre masterplan to revitalize San Diego’s Old Town area, the district built three new buildings to house offices, a central plant and a maintenance building.

San Diego-based architect Carrier Johnson designed a campus that consolidates Caltrans facilities for 850 employees from 16 different buildings.  Clark Construction, with whom Berg has teamed previously on dynamic projects like Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the second-largest tennis stadium in the world, was the builder.  Tishman Construction was the construction manager for Caltrans.

Bergelectric’s part in this massive undertaking included demolition, all new utilities and power for the three buildings, as well as a design-build fire-alarm system and an integrated communications system that links the buildings. Berg relocated high-voltage lines for the demolition and construction phases and reconnected all the power and tel/data systems.
