Cordoba Corporation’s Bond Management Team at Long Beach City College (LBCC) was honored with a Project Achievement Award at the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Southern California Chapter’s 26th Annual Scholarship and Project Awards Gala on April 26, 2018.  Project Achievement Awards “recognize outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management.”

Cordoba’s LBCC Bond Management Team earned the CMAA Project Achievement Award for Buildings QQ & RR at the LBCC Pacific Coast Campus.  The $20.3 million project, which was financed with voter-approved bonds, involved a new two-story 24,454-square foot building (Building QQ) and an adjacent renovated building (Building RR).  Both buildings house LBCC’s Electrical Technology Program, with Building QQ sharing space with a new Lifetime Learning Center offering Senior Studies programs for older adults.  The buildings provide students and faculty with state-of-the-art labs and technology as well as “green” features to save energy and water use.

Contracted as the Bond Management Team at LBCC, Cordoba Corporation provides comprehensive project and construction management services in support of LBCC’s capital program.  Key Cordoba Bond Management Team members were present to accept the CMAA Project Achievement Award, including Program Director Terrance DeGray, Construction Manager John Duong, Assistant Construction Managers Noel De Castro and Joshua Beltran, and Project Coordinator Nicole Soria-Velarde, along with LBCC’s Deputy Director of Planning & Construction Medhanie Ephrem.

“I am thrilled that this project at LBCC’s Pacific Coast Campus has been honored by the CMAA Southern California Chapter,” stated Terrance DeGray.  “This was an exciting project for our team and the campus, as it allows the college to expand its services to more seniors in the community, while the modernized Electrical Technology facilities will provide students with state-of-the-art labs, technology and green features that will help conserve water and energy use.  I am really proud of our Cordoba Bond Management Team for providing project and construction management leadership on this important project.”

At the April 26th event, the CMAA Southern California Chapter Foundation also acknowledged 2017 – 2018 summer interns and scholarship sponsors and recipients, including Sarah Donnally of Cal Poly Pomona, who served as a sponsored intern at Cordoba Corporation at the LBCC Bond Management Program.

“Sarah has a bright future ahead of her,” stated Terrance DeGray. “During her internship at Cordoba Corporation, she did an excellent job working with our LBCC Bond Management Team.  We are very proud of her and were pleased to sponsor her internship.”
