C.W. Driver Completes $38M STEM Building at Mt. San Jacinto Community College, Menifee Campus

MENIFEE, CA — Adding to Riverside County’s public community college offerings, C.W. Driver Companies, a builder serving California since 1919, has completed construction management services on a new two-story STEM building on the Menifee campus of Mt. San Jacinto College. The $38 million building is the fifth project for the community college district from the Southern California construction firm.

The STEM building, which broke ground in May 2022, unifies the school’s growing biology, physical science, and math programs into one location (where they were previously spread out across several campuses). The 57,400-square-foot structure will provide students and faculty with a centralized hub in the center of campus to collaborate, experiment, and learn in the various science and technology fields. In addition to creating one centralized building for STEM studies, the project also provides the math department a permanent place for instruction. The building, which features expansive windows and an atrium, houses science labs and lecture rooms, general classrooms, math and general studies labs, and faculty offices.

The Menifee campus is one of four for Mt. San Jacinto College, which has additional campuses in Banning, Temecula, and San Jacinto. The college serves more than 25,000 full- and part-time students annually.

“The new Mt. San Jacinto College STEM building is an important addition to the Menifee campus, bringing a modern hub to student and faculty members at the center of campus,” said Brent Hughes, COO at C.W. Driver Companies. “The integrated design and spacious indoor and outdoor spaces are designed to encourage collaboration and learning, specifically for the college’s growing STEM courses.”

C.W. Driver Companies collaborated with architects DLR Group on the project.
