Cordoba Corporation’s Bond Management Team at Long Beach City College (LBCC) will be honored with a Project Achievement Award at the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Southern California Chapter’s 29th Annual Scholarship and Project Awards Gala on June 30th, 2022. Project Achievement Awards “recognize outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management.” The Program is designed to recognize and promote professionalism, innovation, and excellence in the management of the construction process. The award will be given to LBCC for the construction of the Kinesiology Labs and Aquatics Center. The project architect was Westburg & White and BERNARDS was the general contractor for KLAC (Kinesiology Labs and Aquatics Center). The Cordoba Corporation oversees and manages all Measure E and LB projects. 

As a significant milestone of the LBCC Facilities Master Plan 2041, the Outdoor Kinesiology Labs encompassed a renovation of the physical education outdoor playing fields to better accommodate instructional needs as well as intercollegiate athletics. The deterioration of the old fields required a complete renovation due to the deterioration of the fields. This project provided enhanced and modernized labs to meet the long terms needs of the physical education programs. 

After decades of championship aquatic programs, LBCC was elated to launch the construction of Building W – Aquatics Center as the second component of this project. The existing swimming pool had significant and extensive repair issues that could not be cost-effectively addressed. The Aquatic Center project included the construction of a new 65 meter x 25 yd. pool and adjacent training facilities, locker rooms, and team rooms. The new Aquatics Center project addressed the major and costly repair problems associated with the existing pool and provides a modern, state-of-the-art complex to meet the needs of the instructional Kinesiology program as well as intercollegiate athletics.  

“As a former LBCC student-athlete, coach, and athletic director, the KLAC Project was and is very meaningful work for me. The opportunity to have a major impact on our students and community by elevating their experience with this amazing facility is what our vision is all about! We wanted to provide an NCAA Division 1 experience for our student-athletes and for area youth when we host athletic events, and that is what we have done. The opportunities to serve our student body and the Greater Long Beach community through these facilities are endless and we look forward to seeing that unfold.” (Randy Totorp, Dean of Kinesiology and Athletics).

Highlights of the new KLAC facility include: 

  • New artificial turf soccer and softball fields 
  • New tennis courts  
  • New beach sand volleyball courts 
  • New 65 x 25 meter Olympic-size swimming pool and 12,000 square feet of support facilities in the Aquatics Center  

Long Beach City College (LBCC) celebrated the completion of this incredible facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Liberal Arts Campus site on April 1st, 2022. The new athletic facilities will meet the long-term needs of the Intercollegiate Athletics Department, providing premiere space where students can learn, train, practice, and compete. Softball, Swimming & Diving, Water Polo, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Tennis, and Beach Volleyball programs will all take advantage of the new KLAC complex.
