Local Community Investment

A key component of the Southeastern Live Well Center project is to invest a minimum of $6 million in the local community through local subcontracting and workforce opportunities. By incorporating innovative and proactive strategies into a comprehensive inclusion program, the Project will become a vehicle to economic growth in the region with impacts beyond just this project.

The Team

Over the past 18 years, PCL + Steinberg Hart have collaborated to build iconic buildings and infrastructure such as the City of Coronado Civic and Community Center on Glorietta Bay and the Cesar Chavez Parking Structure in Barrio Logan. These projects enhanced their local communities by incorporating public art into the project design and celebrating their respective community identities and cultural diversity.


The SELWC will be located on the corner of Euclid Avenue and Market Street at the center of the community adjacent to the Malcom X Library, transit center and the Elementary Institute of Science. 

For more information regarding the services provided, refer to the County of San Diego's Southeastern Live Well Center website. 

PCL is excited to partner with Southeastern San Diego's local and diverse business community reflecting the Diamond District’s vibrancy. We are committed to providing the resources that subcontractors need to get prequalified and receive information on upcoming opportunities, qualification resources, and more.

PCL is committed to establishing a local workforce representative of the community’s diverse and rich culture. PCL will work closely with our subcontractors to activate existing local talent for the project.

We will educate local community members on pathways to careers in construction by hosting a Career in Construction Workshop, connect work-ready individuals to construction opportunities, and assist subcontractors in identifying local candidates.

A minimum of 5% of the workforce will be comprised of local workers residing in the 92102, 92113, 92114, and 92139 zip codes. For more information about local worker opportunities contact us at SELWCOutreach@pcl.com.
