San Luis Obispo
The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo recently completed construction of a new stage at the Dallidet Adobe and Gardens. The new addition was dedicated with a ribbon-cutting event and reception in the garden of the adobe, with History Center of SLO County members, staff, volunteers and members of the community attending.
The project was funded, managed and staffed by Rotarians, with help from Cal Poly construction management students.
Based on a design by past History Center president Chuck Crotser, the redwood beams echo the wooden porch of the historic Dallidet Adobe.
The stage will provide a safe backdrop for the concerts, educational programs and weddings that are held there.

An interdisciplinary team of Cal Poly students captured second place in the four-year college category at the 2016 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Residential Construction Management Competition. The competition challenged students to prepare a land acquisition proposal, including building cost estimates, a construction schedule, projections for cash flow and return on investment, and marketing and risk analysis. The team of business, architecture and construction management students collaborated to complete each aspect of the proposal before presenting their proposals and defending their project to a panel of industry experts. This year’s second-place award marks the 11th time since 2001 that Cal Poly has finished in the top five at the competition.

2005 Cal Poly SLO graduate Jordan A.M. Moffett was a recipient of the Distinguished Leadership Award in the Young Professional Category (35 years and younger) at the Design-Build Conference & Expo held in Denver, CO November 2-4, 2015. This honor recognizes those who have demonstrated leadership, efforts, and achievements which have impacted the understanding, use and advancement of design-build practices as an effective and efficient project delivery method. Those eligible for this award included owners, practitioners, elected officials at all levels, and full-time faculty and students at accredited institutions of higher learning.
Jordan has a 15 year history with Design-Build Delivery, commencing academically with his CM Minor and Architecture Major, followed by 10 years in the industry. The cornerstone was his course in “Fundamentals of Design-Build”, introducing him to these concepts, which he embraced immediately, realizing single-source project delivery was the link to connect the AEC industry. His career started with The Haskell Company based in Florida. Seven years later he joined McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. in California. Efforts there were instrumental in enhanced client experiences and led to his Company’s nomination for this award. He worked with Scripps Health, a prime McCarthy client, to obtain DBIA Conference scholarships solidifying the benefits of single-source project delivery, leading to the shift to Design-Build Delivery for all future work within their system. He has participated on multi-million dollar projects ($14M-$275M) in either an Architectural or Project Management capacity, seeking cross-training opportunities whenever possible.
