Architectural Design / Bridging Design
Contra Costa County needed to consolidate several divisions of the County’s Department of Conservation and Development into a single, modern, office location located at 30 and 40 Muir Road in Martinez, California. Several design solutions were implemented to satisfy departmental objectives, such as joint-use facilities, open office environments, day-lighting, photovoltaic power generation and LEED Gold Certification. The County retained Interactive Resources to generate bridging documents for a complete interior and exterior remodel to this two-building complex in order to establish the scope-of-work for design and construction by a design-build team.
Together with our team of professional consultants, we developed designs for mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems, and developed structural concepts to accomplish an open-office plan. We prepared cost estimates, performed value-engineering, and simplified the design in order to meet the project’s financial budget.
Our services were expanded to include space programing, interior planning, and layout of modular furniture, and we successfully implemented many recommendations contained in building evaluation reports, which included hazardous material assessments and accessibility compliance.
