“This was a complex construction development that required our team to demolish the existing facilities, set up comprehensive temporary facilities and build the entire project while the country club and golf course remained fully operational,” said Mike Bolda, senior project manager at Driver SPG. “I couldn’t be more proud of how our team tackled these challenges while creating an iconic finished product that Orange County residents will enjoy for decades to come.”
