Camellia Court Medical Office Building Steel Topping Out Ceremony

The Steel Topping Out Ceremony for Camellia Court Medical Office Building 2 could not have happened on a more perfect day!


On September 30th, PNG celebrated with owner and architect the last member of steel to top the new medical office building. Complete steel erection beat the original schedule - kuddos to the team and all involved!


Signing of the beam represents good luck to the buildings future occupants, while the pine tree signifies that no worker was injured on the job during the steel erection phase.


Thank you to our client, Allied Pacific IPA and our design partners over at HED. The celebration was attended by our key trade subcontractor, Junior Steel, as well as City Council Members, State Representatives, and the Mayor.

Project Completion | Lancaster Area Battery (LAB) Project

Project Completion | PNG Builders is excited to share that the Lancaster Area Battery (LAB) project is officially activated and commercially operational, serving the local Lancaster population and beyond.


This utility-scale energy storage is the bridge between a resilient power grid and our clean energy future. The ability to store clean energy to use during periods of high demand, and when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing, is critical to California’s clean energy transition.


The 127 MW, 4-Hr (508 MWh) project is a standalone BESS (battery energy storage system) that is interconnected through the owner's various substation networks of multiple operations across the southland – when combined has enough energy to power 170,000 Californian homes for 4 hours.


As the EPC, PNG's scope of work included site grading and construction of concrete pads to mount the battery cubes and associated electrical control equipment, such as transformers and inverters.


Thank you to the client, The AES Corporation, who entrusted us with this project!

Camellia Court MOB2 is going vertical! Steel erection began last month and is making great strides. The future 47,000 s.f. medical office building for owner Allied Pacific IPA will be a 2-story MOB above subterranean parking level.


Captured in the video on our LinkedIn page is roughly 1/3 progress of the steel erection phase. Looking forward to the steel topping out ceremony!
