PROJECT SPOTLIGHT
Five Thirty B - Sky Terrace Deck | 
Downtown San Diego

In partnership with Kearny Real Estate, Prevost Construction was awarded a series of renovation projects to revitalize Five Thirty B in downtown San Diego. As part of the renovation, a team of local street artists led by artist Maxx Moses, painted a 30-foot by 105-foot mural on a wall on the 3rd floor Sky Terrace - which will be downtown San Diego's only private and outdoor meeting environment and roof garden exclusive for tenants to comfortably enjoy the outdoors while having 360 degree views overlooking the B Street corridor. The mural is titled, "Inception's Reflection" and the colorful shapes and patterns are meant to invigorate those who live and work downtown. The architect is Jamie Salvo of Gensler. The Prevost team includes TC Johnson as Project Manager, Matt Correira as Superintendent, and Raquel Varjabedian as Project Coordinator.

COMPLETED PROJECT
Tillster | Sorrento Valley

Tillster is an award-winning leader in digital ordering and customer engagement programs for the quick service restaurant and casual dining industries. For their new office in San Diego, Prevost Construction built a 9,745-square-foot interactive and creative office space in collaboration with Lincoln Property Services and Hurkes/Harris. In order to achieve a greater sense of depth to open up the suite, Prevost installed lighting features that included decorative acoustical "clouds" and Highbay lighting. To achieve a rustic atmosphere, Prevost included exposed piping, conduits and ductwork. The Prevost Team includes Brian Skinner as Project Manager, William Reyes as Superintendent, and Raquel Varjabedian as Project Coordinator.

CURRENT PROJECT
Advantar | Sorrento Canyon

Prevost Construction is currently building an IOS 8 Clean Room Manufacturing Suite at Advantar as a pilot for the production of an ointment for the US Army that repels sand fleas. The ointment also treats the disease the sand fleas cause, called Leishmaniasis. It is a parasitic disease caused by protozoan that initially lives in the sand fly and is transmitted to people through sand fly bites. The project will include clean room protocol construction of the materials, growing vestibule, Manufacturing Room and the equipment room. The Manufacturing Room will consist of process piping connecting the product vessels together for filling of the product tubes. The Prevost Team includes Mike Soth as Senior Project Manager, Roger Shadwell as Superintendent, and Taylor Prevost as Project Coordinator. Advantar is slated to be completed by the end of March.

CHANGE: The Only Constant

So many people are afraid of change. They want things to remain the way they have been for as long as possible. If you run a business, I can assure you that kind of thinking will run you right out of business....guaranteed. Any business, large or small, whether you sell products or services, own or manage real estate, must change, evolve, or die.

Who, what, when, where, and why must be considered carefully when implementing change in your business or the results might be disastrous.
