Turner Construction Company has announced that the California Department of General Services selected a design-build partnership of Turner and AC Martin to deliver a 20-story office tower in Sacramento
The $520-million building will be a new home for more than 3,500 employees across a number of state agencies, including the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Water Resources, the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, and the Wildlife Conservation Board.
The 838,000-sq. ft. headquarters building will features 10,000 sq. ft. of retail and public space, an auditorium with 300 seats, a multi-vendor food court, and a pedestrian plaza. The project also includes exterior improvements to the nearby, historic Heilbron House, as well as ground-up construction of a childcare facility, which will serve approximately 120 children.
“The building is designed to meet Net-Zero Energy standards, and it’s seeking LEED Platinum certification,” Turner project executive Grant Griffanti said in a statement, noting that water efficiency is a major consideration for all new government construction in the state. “This building will use at least 50 percent less water than a typical building of its size and function. It will rely on natural daylight wherever possible. And it will feature high-efficiency fixtures, lighting, and mechanical equipment for heating and cooling.”
Construction is expected to begin this fall, with completion scheduled for summer of 2021.
