Courtyard at Irvine Spectrum

Working on the Courtyard Marriott Irvine Spectrum project has been a great experience. It is refreshing to work on a project that has so much community support. The final product is sure to be iconic in one of the most popular shopping districts in Southern California and a great addition to the DCI Irvine portfolio.”
