CCM Builders, a family-owned business which has been general contracting and developing real estate in the South Bay got approval to develop a z-shaped complex with hotel rooms, residential units, and a pool.

The project is welcomed by the community and is expected to contribute to the city’s goal of growing its hotel industry as well as create much-needed housing in Imperial Beach, as featured on the ABC 10News San Diego (

The project is called Blue Wave and consists of a 73,000-sqft four-story complex with 47 hotel rooms, 51 residential units, and an underground parking garage with 106 spaces. It also includes a two-story commercial building that adds a restaurant, shops, and an office.

S3DA was awarded the structural design and MEP design of this project, particularly because of our capabilities to handle both types of projects simultaneously. This is a unique approach which significantly reduces design clashes and offers a single source of responsibility, which leads to lower costs and adhered deadlines because of a more effective working procedure.
