Vanir SoCal Wins 2020 Project Achievement Award

Vanir has won a CMAA Southern California Chapter Project Achievement Award for the Patton State Hospital Kitchens Project!

Category: Constructed Value of $11M to $50M
Owner: California Department of General Services
Client: Patton State Hospital
Final construction cost: $27,846,793

Vanir provided construction management services for the building of a new central kitchen and partial remodeling of seven satellite kitchens within the Patton State Hospital (PSH).

  • Central Kitchen: The new 36,000-square-foot central kitchen consists of docks for food preparation, processing, assembly and distribution, as well as dry and refrigerated storage areas. It also includes a wash area, offices, a conference room, mechanical and electrical rooms and a break room.
  • Satellite Kitchens: The seven existing satellite kitchens are located inside secure treatment areas in five different buildings. The facilities were modified to accommodate a new cook-chill bulk delivery system that will reduce the staffing and daily operations for cooking and preparing 4,500 meals per day from seven days a week to four.

Located in San Bernardino County and opened in 1893, PSH provides treatment to forensically and civilly committed patients within a secure treatment area.

Vanir was honored to continue its long-standing relationship with this client, which began in 1986 when we were contracted to oversee a major renovation and new construction program at five state hospitals including Patton.

The award will be presented at the 2020 CMAA Southern California Awards Gala on May 12 in Long Beach, CA.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this project!
