R&S Awarded Design-Build 'O' Street Project
The California Department of General Services (DGS) announced the selection of a design-build team to construct a new office building at 1215 O Street in downtown Sacramento. Rudolph and Sletten was selected as the general contractor for the project, partnered with design firm ZGF Architects and local firm Lionakis.
The new O Street building will be 11 stories and approximately 360,000 square feet. This project will be constructed as Zero Net Energy and is targeting a LEED platinum certification. It will also use 60 percent less water than a typical building and will utilize clean, solar power generated as part of a first of its kind agreement with SMUD that will move DGS’ Sacramento portfolio towards solar power.
The expected completion date is early 2021 and the estimated total project cost is $274,000,000. Approximately 1,150 employees from the California Health and Human Services Agency, the Department of State Hospitals, and the Department of Developmental Services, will work at the new building. A pedestrian plaza will open up the building to the public with first-floor retail space and a food court-style cafeteria to further incorporate the building as a natural addition to the neighborhood.
