    Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE), the largest solar contractor in the United States, recently opened its new headquarters in San Diego to accommodate a growing team spurred by a robust outlook for the renewable energy industry in the coming years.

    SRE collaborated with ID Studios on the design, building upon a long-term partnership with the Solana Beach-based firm. A division of Swinerton Builders, SRE managed construction on the project and worked with the Swinerton self-perform trade experts on several stages of the build-out. The Engine is Red provided additional design services on the project.

    The 25,000 square-foot location expands on an existing 5,700 square-foot operations and control center and office space that was completed in 2018. The expansion provides additional workspaces for a larger San Diego team, as well as several collaborative meeting areas and “hotel” desks for team members visiting from solar job sites across the country.

    Swinerton Renewable Energy’s headquarters welcomes employees to make themselves at home, offering a full kitchen, showers, a wellness room, large patio and multiple lounge and refreshment areas located throughout the space. Several large-scale graphics, including a “Solar 101” wall, reflect the SRE team’s creativity and commitment to STEM education. The space also houses the company’s 24-hour a day, 365-days a year operations and control center.
