Boys & Girls Club, La Mesa, CA
A second facility, completed by Hamann Construction, was constructed for the Boys & Girls Club of East County as a consequence of the success they experienced with the Hamann team at the Santee clubhouse. The La Mesa clubhouse is a single story 25,500 sf tilt-up concrete facility with immediate adjacency to the La Mesa Arts Academy middle school. The project is sited on school district property which added a unique aspect to the planning and permitting of the project through the Division of the State Architect (DSA).
First floor functions within the building include a game room, art and learning / computer center, a 10,175 sf gymnasium with hardwood floors, staff offices, covered lunch patio, a secured playground and a full kitchen used for cooking classes and camp lunch programs. The building supports the B&G Clubs after-school programs as well as youth sports and a full-time summer camp program. The facility is used 6 days a week including evenings as a practice facility for youth basketball and volleyball teams as well as a tournament venue. Included, contiguous to clubhouse, is a snack facility managed by La Mesa youth soccer clubs for game time refreshments.
