TUSD Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony for
New Activity Center at Utt Middle School

The Tustin Unified School District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Activity Center at C.E. Utt Middle School, 13601 Browning Ave., on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 11 a.m. The event is open to the public.

The new Activity Center is approximately 13,000 square feet and will be located near the corner of Bryan and Browning avenues. It will include a lobby, gymnasium/multipurpose area, sports flooring, retractable bleachers, storage space, restrooms, performance area, lighting and two adjoining classrooms.

The project has been designed to provide optimal community access and close proximity to existing locker room facilities, and will be situated in an area that calls for minimal disruption to heavily used recreational areas on campus.

NTD Architecture is the design firm and the new Activity Center will be built by Balfour Beatty Construction. It is scheduled to be completed about a year from its start date.

The project will cost approximately $6.5 million and is being funded through the Measure L campus modernization program.

Construction work is underway on the new Activity Centers at Columbus Tustin, Currie and Hewes middle schools.
