CALEXICO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - A new contractor and architect have been selected for a join housing project by Imperial Valley College (IVC) and San Diego State University (SDSU) Imperial Valley.

First announced in fall 2023, the housing project's new contractor was selected to be Nielsen Construction California, Inc., which will be using their design partner SILLMAN as the architect.

"Through this new development and partnership with Imperial Valley College, our students will be able to save on transportation and housing costs and are likely to develop an even deeper sense of campus community. The selection of Nielsen Construction California and SILLMAN is an important next step in bringing this shared vision to life."
