This ultra energy-efficient, award-winning state office building is located just east of the Capitol in Sacramento. The State solicited design/build teams to deliver the office project with a focus on sustainability. Our multi-disciplined team provided over one hundred environmental or sustainable enhancements to the basic building design, all within the stipulated Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Items such as a 30 kVA photovoltaic array, raised access floors throughout, recycled materials and stringent air-quality testing were just a few of the features that helped us to win the commission and led to a LEED Gold rating for the finished project. The building operates at approximately 32% below California Title 24 energy consumptions standards—the most stringent standards in the nation.
