In the PC Phase, it is the State’s intent to include the selected firm in only the Design-Build Entity proposal evaluation and selection process.




Gregory Bateson Building Renovation: This project will rehabilitate the 4-story 293,516 gsf Gregory Bateson Building located at 1600 9th Street, Sacramento. The scope of work includes correcting building wide deficiencies including: fire-life safety improvements, hazardous material removal, water intrusion repairs, redesign of details to the exterior facades and components susceptible to water intrusion; upgrades and repairs for disabled accessibility compliance, addition of high tech HVAC, new lighting controls, additional security improvements, and replacement of interior finishes that are at the end of their useful life. The project will target Zero Net Energy, LEED silver at a minimum, and carbon neutral goals for operations without the reliance on fossil fuels. In 2016, the State Historic Preservation Officer designated the Gregory Bateson Building as a historically significant building due to its innovative design elements, which at the time of original construction were considered to be cutting edge for architectural design and energy efficiency. The estimated cost of construction (only) for the Gregory Bateson Building Renovation is approximately $131 million. The tentative construction duration is 38 months.


Prospective firms are hereby made aware that the selected firm and any team member (individual, firm, sub-consultant or subsidiary or affiliate thereof) shall be precluded from participating on the future Design-Build Entity team(s), Master Architect team(s), construction, or other competitively bid contract work on this project.


The Master Architect and Environmental Consultant have already been contracted for the Project.
