As part of the San Diego Yacht Club’s lease renewal with the Port of San Diego, DPR Construction was retained for the project to make improvements to the club facilities and site.
The existing locker buildings, pool heads, junior clubhouse, maintenance building and dry storage areas north of the main clubhouse were demolished and replaced with new, state-of-the-art structures. The new structures included the 6,900-sq.-ft. Malin Burnham Sailing Center, which houses the junior sailing and high school sailing team programs, the regatta manager’s office, dock master’s office, fitness and training room, as well as classroom and banquet event spaces. Additionally, DPR constructed a two-story, 12,160-sq.-ft. locker room building and 2,400-sq.-ft. maintenance building. Other improvements included the addition of an 80-foot ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) approved gangway, a new stormwater management infrastructure and landscaping.
