Collaboration with design firm SmithGroup has created a transformative workplace that will allow DPR employees and the surrounding community to re-envision how they work now and provide a snapshot of how they will want to work in the future. The space includes open office seating areas, active/addressable seating plans, meeting rooms, break rooms, open collaborative areas, focus areas, training rooms, lounge spaces, and other special use spaces.
Designed to meet LEED® Platinum and WELL™ certification standards, the space is also targeting Net Positive Energy (NPE). To achieve NPE, the office will offset its energy use via on-site photovoltaic solar energy generation to produce 105% of its needed power. Additionally, the building will provide battery backup for resiliency and ban the use of combustibles, relying on electrical energy alone.
DPR’s office is positioned to be one of the most environmentally sustainable buildings in the city and a model for what can be affordably accomplished with existing buildings throughout the region.
The Making of DPR's Sacramento Office
DPR completely renovated the 1801 J Street building, including a 6,000-sq.-ft. addition using mass timber. We are excited to be a part of the Midtown community!
