Solano County Government Center

FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA, USA  Housing more than 600 county employees, the Solano County Government Center consolidates the administrative and office functions of 16 public agencies into one centralized facility. KMD provided bridging documentation for the 300,000 SF, six-story facility. The project includes a 1,050-stall free standing parking structure, a 42,500 SF adjoining Probation Building, site development and all of the associated design sub-consultant work. KMD's architectural design services focused on delivering the Master Architect’s design intent, confirming the County’s programming, tenant space planning documentation, site design documentation, construction administration, and eventually post-occupancy evaluations. KMD also supervised, managed and conducted peer reviews for the construction documents the design team created and worked with the design-build team to ensure fulfillment of the design intent. KMD’s suggestion to retain the services of a green building consultant to collaborate with on the benefits and cost issues of sustainable building materials and energy systems led to the project’s LEED certification.
