The West End Complex will provide a consolidated home for the Resources Agency in the Capitol core of Sacramento. At 1.4 million square feet, it is the largest single office project ever undertaken in the Capitol. Our firm was engaged for programming, public outreach and performance documents leading to design/build competitions for multiple phases of construction.

We began the planning process with a series of staff workshops to establish the building program – the census of staff, square footage required, features and relationships within the complex. We followed this with a series of very public workshops to engage the community at large in the planning process.

We were successful in establishing strong community support for the project, through inclusion of retail shops, public plazas and potential mixed-use housing within the project brief. These features were strongly applauded by community members.

The project will be developed in multiple phases. The first phase – expansion of the State’s Central Utility Plant – was completed in 2010. Subsequent design/build phases will be enacted as budget allows.
