The Calf Barn at the Historic Pereira Octagon Barn Complex

Precision has nearly completed a new project for The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County. The Calf Barn will be the last structure in the Octagon Barn Center, a historic gateway to San Luis Obispo and one of city’s favorite gathering spots.

Our architectural partner on the project, Ten Over Studio, designed the wood-framed structure to blend with the 1906 Pereira Octagon Barn. The Calf Barn is situated at the head of the Bob Jones Bike Trail and by fall 2022, will provide a bike repair shop, small retail space, storage, and restrooms for everyone enjoying the trail and the center.

As general contractor, Precision is responsible for managing every scope of the ground-up project, including all site work, poured concrete foundation, framing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, roofing, restroom interior finishes, fire alarm system and sprinklers.  Some of the unique features of this project include the three sets of custom manufactured Barn Doors, Cross Laminated Timber exposed roof beam, and fire-resistant cement board siding.

This is Precision’s second project for the Land Conservancy, a community-supported nonprofit on California’s Central Coast. In January 2020, Precision served as Construction Manager for the Conservancy’s 880-acre Pismo Preserve, a vast open space area above Pismo Beach with panoramic views spanning the coastline.

For that project, Precision oversaw the construction of all facilities, amenities, roads, parking, signage, fencing. Precision also collaborated with representatives of the Northern Chumash tribe after identifying culturally sensitive areas near the trailhead.
