Vanir is providing project and construction management services for the demolition of Contra Costa County’s old administration building and jail. This project will also include the construction of a new satellite administration building and public plaza area, continuing the County’s development goals of creating one unified civic campus and enhancing the downtown area along Pine and Escobar streets.
- Satellite Administration Building: The three-story, 61,555-square-foot satellite administration building will house various County departments and include a café on the first level and a parking garage with 76 spaces. Designed to achieve Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE) and LEED Gold certifications, the project will achieve 90% waste reduction through reuse and recycling strategies, such as reusing marble and wood paneling from the existing administration building.
- Public Plaza: The 25,000-square-foot public plaza will include a series of outdoor spaces to enhance the downtown atmosphere and promote the well-being of employees and visitors. Intimate areas will provide quiet retreat space while larger areas will accommodate various community events.
