GAA Architects of Irvine and Phoenix Commercial Contracting, recently selected by one of the nation's largest CATERPILLAR TRACTOR dealerships, the Quinn Shepard Group, to design and build a new, state-of-the-art equipment refurbishment facility in Whittier, CA, announce that project construction is already under way.

Located adjacent to the 605 Freeway and long considered a highly visible Whittier landmark because of its rows of signature bright yellow earth moving equipment, the Quinn Shepard Group's CATERPILLAR TRACTOR complex expansion will feature sand blasting and painting capabilities and is scheduled for completion in April 2004.
