The Construction Management Association of America earlier this month awarded Newport Beach-based McCarthy Building Company on four of its recent management projects.

The awards went to McCarthy for its management of the Soka University performing arts center and academic facility, John Wayne Airport Terminal C, Westminster Police Department headquarters and Methodist Hospital of Southern California’s new north tower and central utility plant upgrade.

The Soka University Performing Arts Center, which opened in September 2011, features a three-level 47,836-square-foot performing arts center with a 1,000-seat auditorium, in addition to a 48,974-square-foot academic building with 11 classrooms, 29 faculty offices, a black-box theater, dance studio, dressing rooms and musician warm-up spaces.

John Wayne’s new Terminal C, opened in November 2011, increased the airports capacity from 8.4 million annual passengers to 10.8 million and provides international flights. The $211.5 million project added 282,000-square-foot, three-level terminal building and basement, to the existing 448,000-square-feet in Terminals A and B at the Thomas F. Riley Terminal.

The updates to the Westminster Police Department headquarters included a 91,000-sqaure-foot building featuring an upgraded 911 communications center, a new forensics lab, increased evidence storage capacity, an emergency operations center, a Type 1 jail facility and administrative offices.

The final award-winning project, the north tower and central utility upgrade to Methodist Hospital of Southern California, was completed in September 2011 – two months ahead of schedule – and cost $140 million. The project included the addition of a five story, 154,486 square-foot building with 20-bed ICU, emergency care center and dining center.
