The Capistrano Plaza project consisted of the complete exterior and interior renovation of
a multi-tenant retail building located in the heart of historic old San Juan Capistrano.

Dempsey Construction was hired by the building owner to bring their vision of completely
transforming and re-positioning the building (originally constructed in 1958), to reality. The
scope of work included the complete demolition of all interior and exterior improvements,
leaving only the framing and roof structure in place. In addition, a majority of the interior
slab was removed and lowered 9 feet in order to provide street-grade storefronts on the
southern elevation, as well as temporary shoring to allow for the re-configuration of space
and installation of new structural systems. The renovated building features a new
stucco exterior with a wood clad window system, awnings, bi-fold storefront doors and
custom terracotta tile. In addition, a new switchgear and transformer were installed, as well as all new electrical, plumbing and HVAC throughout. Due to the magnitude of the demolition and removal of slab and structural components, an intricate phasing and sequencing plan was developed to assure a smooth construction process.
