SAN DIEGO, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BNBuilders is pleased to announce it has commenced construction on the renovations at the County of San Diego Housing and Community Development Services (HCDS) administrative offices. Located at 3989 Ruffin Road in San Diego, the project is one of three recent San Diego County CM at-Risk contracts awarded to BNBuilders' San Diego office. BNBuilders, who received a notice to proceed in July 2016, won the project by demonstrating its outstanding experience, qualified personnel, financial strength, and strong safety record. BNBuilders is undertaking this landmark project for the County and the local community that will be completed in May 2017.
The County of San Diego contracted with BNBuilders to provide preconstruction and construction services for the 30,000-square-foot HCDS administrative office renovation. Designed by BNIM Architects, the new space will include highly efficient MEP systems and controls, Solatubes for enhanced natural light, LED light fixtures, new exterior glazing and sunshades, new flooring, and new furniture for the County employees. The renovations will provide infrastructure improvements, and will yield water and energy efficiencies resulting in a highly sustainable, Zero Net Energy capable building. In the future, when the photovoltaics are added to the facility, the total amount of energy used by the building will be roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on site.
"This project is designed to be a catalyst showcasing the County of San Diego's commitment to providing human-purposed workplace environments which focus on health and well-being of occupants," said Elif Tinney, Associate Principal at BNIM. "The open and collaborative work environment with views, abundant light and natural ventilation promotes wellness for those who serve the San Diego County community."
Jamie Awford, Principal at BNBuilders, states, "We are proud to be a part of this dynamic and collaborative team and helping the County better meet its mission to build more sustainable projects in San Diego County."
