Rudolph and Sletten Receives 2009 Western Council of Construction Consumers' Distinguished Project Award

Rudolph and Sletten's Expansion of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona's Library Is Selected as One of the Distinguished Projects of the Year

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Rudolph and Sletten announced today that they have received the 2009 Western Council of Construction Consumers' (WCCC) Distinguished Project Award in the Public Facilities category for the expansion of the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona's (Cal Poly) Library. The WCCC recognizes construction projects that demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the areas of quality, cost-efficiency and innovation.

The Carrier Johnson-designed Cal Poly Pomona Library addition included a 104,000 gross-square-foot expansion, a remodel of the existing ground floor, a renovation of the second and third floors, and improvements of the overall site and landscape areas. The addition provided needed lecture, instructional and office space and a 120-seat amphitheater. The project expanded and rearranged functional areas while correcting structural, mechanical, hazardous material, ADA accessibility and code-related deficiencies.

"This award solidifies the experience we had working with both Rudolph and Sletten and Carrier Johnson; Rudolph and Sletten has been the most professional and service-oriented construction company I have worked with," said Leatha J. Elsdon, Senior Project Manager; Facilities, Planning, Design and Construction for California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. "During the construction of the project they demonstrated their impressive ability to safely maneuver around students and faculty, who were utilizing the same space, while staying on course with great attention to detail and schedule."

The award will be presented on Thursday, March 12, 2009, at the Distinguished Project Award Banquet in conjunction with the WCCC Annual Conference in Los Angeles, California.
