SMUD Museum Of Science And Curiosity

SMUD Museum Of Science And Curiosity

Project Details

Location: Sacramento, CA

Square Feet: 48,940

Delivery: Design-Build

Categories: Renovations, Current Projects

The SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity – formerly known as the Powerhouse Science Center – is an adaptive reuse of the historic 1912-era PG&E Power Station, which sat vacant on the banks of the Sacramento River for 60 years. Before becoming the region’s newest hub for science education and exploration, the historic structure had to undergo stabilization and  rehabilitation. The building received a complete structural retrofit and a second floor for flexible exhibit space. A new two-story, 22,000SF addition was built on the east side of the existing building and contains an entry lobby, classrooms, offices, a café and a 110-seat planetarium prominently on display with a zinc-clad hemispheric dome rising above the building’s mass.

CSU Stanislaus Vasche Library Renovation

CSU Stanislaus Vasche Library Renovation

Project Details

Location: Turlock, CA

Square Feet: 133,077

Delivery: Collaborative Design-Build

Categories: Education, Renovations, Current Projects

Project Description

This Collaborative Design-Build partnership between Otto Construction, EHDD Architects and CSU Stanislaus will bring the 3-story 1960s era building into the 21st century. Once the renovation is complete, the 133,077SF library will be able to accommodate 1,000 people at a time.  Currently, Stan State’s collection contains 675,000 items that take up 30,603SF of space on multiple floors, but thanks to a new state-of-the-art Electronic Compact Book Storage System the same collection will only take up 16,977SF.  This feature will leave more space in the renovated library for new amenities such as 24-hour study areas, a cafe, group study spaces and quiet zones.

The first phase of the project consisted of the installation of 32 trailers to serve as a temporary home for library services. This made room for the library to be vacated before construction began.

Delivery: Negotiated

Categories: Housing, Renovations

Project Description

The project consisted of renovating all apartment units, common buildings, and parking lots. With 192 units, our team used a “rotational process” to avoid displacing any of the residents.

The renovations included new doors and windows, flooring, light fixtures, appliances, casework, paint, roofing, siding, and balcony enclosures. Amenity improvements included a renovated community center, administration office, laundry facility, a new basketball half-court, outdoor gathering areas and furnishings, and community garden.
