Laguna Springs CDC Campus
"Once in a while you get the chance to build a fun and fast project that represents what you can do . This is one of those projects"
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Campus in Elk Grove is the consolidation and relocation of CDC healthcare professional groups from numerous locations in Sacramento.
The Overall project consists of building two new three story buildings plus interiors as well as interiors for two existing buildings Ascent built several years previously. To serve the project, a new street extension and bridge had to be constructed. This project has been a testament to how the design build process can speed up the overall construction process. Design was still taking place as we broke ground and started the site work in November of 2012.
Due to extremely tight time constraints for the tenant to move, this project was split into five phases. Phase one through four are the Tenant Improvements. Phase 1 moved in early spring of 2012 to the existing buildings and Phase 4 will move in the first quarter of 2013.
The CDC project schedule was advanced four months to allow an early move in of approximately 1,300 employees. The new shells were completed three months ahead of the original schedule! A shout out has to go to the CDC Team and Pappas Investments for coordinating all the complicated move in's. This project has eight separate move-in's distributed over four separate buildings - quite a coordination challenge. That's a lot of furniture & folks!
