San Diego Mesa College and C.W. Driver Companies recently broke ground for construction of a $12.8 million fine arts building on the school’s Clairemont campus.

The four-story, 26,500 square-foot building will be on the site of the former I-300 building. It will include classrooms and studios for drawing, painting, photography, sculpting and ceramics and is slated to be finished in summer 2018.

C.W. Driver is working with HGW Architects on the project, which is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
