Construction to start on a $3-million
medical building in Corona

IRVINE, CA—(April 4, 2002). Wentz Group, a leading California-based general contractor for 28 years, has been awarded a $3-million contract by Mark C. Johnson Trust to construct the new Chapin Medical Building in Corona. Construction of the new corporate headquarters, located at 419 Jenks Circle, will begin in April 2002 and completion is slated for January 2003.

Designed by Watkins / Baile & Associates of Newport Beach, CA, the distinctive diamond shaped Chapin Medical Building was designed to complement the existing building. The new 2-story, 19,152 square foot medical building will be constructed of steel, wood, cast-in-place concrete, masonry, veneer and stucco. A 70-foot pedestrian bridge adorned with brass and structural glass will join the two buildings. In addition to office space, other interior amenities include, a theater with amphitheater style seating to accommodate 60 people, an IT lab, a communications equipment room, a warehouse and a kitchen. In addition, the building will have a specialized FM 200 fire protection system and future emergency power generation. Inside, the walls will be covered in high-end wall coverings and tile with marble floors and wood cabinetry throughout. The exterior will feature decorative granite pavers and a water feature.

"Together, the project consultants and Wentz Group have worked diligently during the pre-construction process to finalize construction details," said Scott Mulkay, project manager for Wentz Group. "Because of the attention to detail early on, we’re confident that the construction process will go smoothly."

"Our goal is for the new Chapin Medical Building to match the existing building," said Tom Blaylock, project manager for Chapin Medical. "We’re confident that our new headquarters will exhibit the same superior quality that we’ve seen in other Wentz Group projects."
