New Natural Resources Agency Headquarters
California Department of General Services
The new Natural Resources Agency Headquarters (also referred to as the P Street Building) for the California Department of General Services is a 21-story, 838,000 SF office tower. The building will serve as the workplace for 3,500 state employees and accommodate the Department of Natural Resources along with seven other state agencies. building will also be a new destination for the public, offering 10,000 SF of ground-level retail space, a multi-vendor food court, and a pedestrian plaza.
Designed to meet LEED-Platinum and net-zero energy standards, the project will include radiant floor heating and cooling, reclaimed water systems, mechanical chilled sails, and building materials such as reclaimed wood and local/renewable materials. Sustainability measures such as these will enable the building to generate 235.8 kW of solar energy on-site and use at least 50 percent less water than a typical, comparable office building.
The building will house nine state agencies responsible for the protection and management of the state’s environment and wildlife. Designed to honor the mission of the agencies, the 21-story building engages and reaches out to the community, recalls shapes, colors and textures found throughout the natural splendor of California and adds responsibly to the skyline of Sacramento by targeting a LEED-Platinum rating.
