Design-Build Delivery / LEED NC Gold Certified / Adaptive Re-use/Historic Rehabilitation

Design-build rehabilitation of the historic Marion Davies Estate constructed in the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst and designed by Julia Morgan. Today, the site includes three elements from the original estate fully restored: the Guest House, Swimming Pool and a builkhead; and new construction of outdoor recreational areas anchored by new one- and two-story buildings.

Design-build allowed us to focus budget-saving strategies on unseen elements that had small impact on the architect’s vision, but high impact on cost savings. As a result, Pankow affected $4.5 million in savings that the owner and architect could embrace.

The project adhered strictly to Secretary of the Interior historic guidelines and was reviewed by the city’s landmark commission to assure the project’s appropriateness. By being involved in the design, Pankow was able to come up with quick solutions to the rehabilitation challenges that kept the schedule moving and lessened the impact on the historic fabric.

Hybrid of Design-Build and Integrated Project Delivery

Using a hybrid of design build and integrated project delivery, the project team met the challenge to develop a two-acre multi-million dollar recycling facility in less than one year.

The Center not only serves as a recycling drop-off location, but also is a living model of sustainable practices, boasting net zero energy and net zero water use and innovative re-use of building materials – appropriate to a recycling center.
By partnering with Zeta Communities to provide a high quality modular structure, the team met material, energy, water and cost goals in way that build-in-place construction could not.

Design-Build Delivery / Public Private Partnership / Historic Rehabilitation / LEED NC Gold Certified

The Richmond Civic Center campus celebrates the modernist architecture of 1940s famed architect Timothy Pfleuger and is a designated historic district. Balancing architectural integrity with modern technology and sustainability was a very important factor of the renovation.

Thanks to cost savings identified by the construction team during the design process, additional funds were put towards the City Hall and the Community Services Center to raise from the original target of LEED Silver to Gold certification.

The installation of roof-top photovoltaic panels provides 122.43 kW of output, 15 percent of the Civic Center’s electricity. The City Hall’s performance for energy use exceeds the State’s energy code by 20 percent and 440 Civic Center Plaza exceeds state energy code by 38 percent.
