Design-build success

November 30, 2020

With a quick turnaround and design decisions being made daily, UC Davis Health selected design-build project delivery to bring their new Patient Contact Center buildout to life.

Rudolph and Sletten collaborated with design partner DGA on the 70,000sf interior remodel of an existing two-story building in Rancho Cordova. The project included demolition of the existing interior and a complete, new tenant build-out. The new call center includes open office environments, hard wall offices, conference and collaboration areas, and café-style break rooms with an outdoor patio on the ground floor.

The team successfully navigated two mid-construction scope additions—a new roof and an outdoor patio—and the added challenge of building during a pandemic. A dedicated COVID safety coordinator and close coordination with suppliers helped the team maintain the schedule.

The project—designed to meet LEED Silver—is on track to exceed sustainability goals with LEED Gold CI certification. A key sustainability feature is participation in SMUD’s Commercial SolarShares program.

“[The team at] DGA were blown away by the quality of the work—it looks fantastic! Keep up the good work.”
