Progressive Design-Build


  • Award Winner

Using progressive design-build delivery, XL Construction built a new, 22,000 s.f. Environmental Science Building on a picturesque ridgetop of the Skyline College campus. This elegant one-story structure provides sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding hills. With flexibility to host classes and revenue-generating events, the facility is a key asset to the college and its community. At the heart of the building is the 290-person events center, for which XL sourced and installed 22-foot-high high structural glass to create majestic views. The facility also features two 56-seat dry labs/classrooms and two 120-seat lecture halls. XL also installed an outdoor learning area incorporating native boulders. The building is LEED-Gold certified and Zero Net Energy-ready.
