Irvine, Calif. — Ware Malcomb announced that construction is complete on the exterior renovation of Katella Office Campus in Los Alamitos, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided architectural design services for the project.

With two buildings totaling 149,916 square feet and situated over 9.6 acres, Katella Office Campus is ideally located on the border of Orange County and Los Angeles with easy access to numerous Southern California freeways and thoroughfares.

Ware Malcomb designed the new exterior architecture of the front entry locations of both buildings using new aluminum composite metal panels and glazing. Site improvements to the front entries also included upgrading the concrete paving and adding drought tolerant landscaping. In addition, the firm provided site upgrades to the shared break patios behind the buildings, including new paving, landscaping and added seating. New exterior paint on both buildings completed the renovation.

“We were able to modernize the design of both buildings while still utilizing the existing structural framing,” said Tom Myers, Regional Vice President of Ware Malcomb’s Irvine office. “This transformation has made Katella Office Campus a more inviting and functional space for the people who work there, while also making it easier for tenants to recruit and retain top talent in Southern California.”

The General Contractor for the project is CDG Builders and the Developer is Lincoln Property Company.
