Claremont McKenna College Roberts Pavilion

Project Overview

The 132,000-square-foot, three-story Claremont McKenna College Roberts Pavilion serves as a fitness, athletics, and event center. The lower level contains a practice facility and competition arena for varsity sports, but it can also double as an performing arts center for speaking, musical, and dramatic events. Accessed from the lobby, the 1,850-seat arena is the most impressive feature of the Roberts Pavilion. State-of-the-art video technology in the arena integrates theatrical lighting and sound systems to optimize live streaming during major events. Also provided are two visiting team locker rooms, and locker rooms for game officials, coaches, and physical education and athletic staff.

A swimming pool is to the west of the project, duct banks with high-voltage power and telecommunications on the south and west sides, busy streets to the south, and a running track to the east. These conditions led to cost and constructability decisions related to shoring versus excavation layback of the necessary 25-foot-deep excavation. To mitigate costs, PCL’s project team developed a plan to provide shoring at only two sides of the excavation.

PCL worked with CMC to relocate the south duct bank, as this provided a better long-term solution for future operations. This also prevented very disruptive shutdowns to the three colleges served by the high-voltage power and telecommunications provided by this duct bank.
