Newport Beach Civic Center NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA

SME Industries

Newport Beach Civic Center features a unique wave-inspired roof structure which channels wind and cools the building. Pristine stairs and custom railings provide ease of access with secure and pleasurable walkways together with the pedestrian bridge which creates a connection over the wetlands area of the property.

The skills and craftsmanship of SME Steel are prominently displayed throughout this project.

Newport Beach Civic Center was featured in the Jan 2015 issue of Civil Engineering Magazine.
