Incredible new photos just released of our project where we served as Associate Architect at the Clifford L. Allenby Building in downtown Sacramento, CA.  Lionakis teamed with ZGF (Architect of Record) and Rudolph & Sletten (General Contractor) to form a qualified team with experience in the design and construction of high-rise buildings. The new 350,000 square feet office building for the Department of Developmental Services, the Department of State Hospitals, and the California Health and Human Services Agency is located at the southern portion of the city block bound by 12th, 13th, O, and N Streets. This project is the first major building constructed by DGS in over a decade using the Design-Build method.

Employee wellness is at the forefront of the project’s design, as is sustainability. The building is Net Zero Energy as designed, targeting LEED platinum® certification. It uses 60 percent less water than similarly-sized office buildings. Photovoltaics on the roof provide solar power to maximize on-site renewable energy, supplemented by off-site solar energy sources through the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). This energy program is part of a first-of-its-kind agreement with SMUD in which DGS’ entire Sacramento portfolio will move to solar power.

We have so many great photos to share, all by the talented photographer Connie Zhou – so stay tuned for more updates as we continue to share the excitement of this project’s completion. Enjoy the gallery below!
