Nacht & Lewis teamed with DPR Construction and Capitol Avenue Development to design and build a new field office facility for the CHP in Grass Valley. The facility utilized Basalite’s new “Ship Lap” Concrete Masonry Units combined with complimentary building products to create a distinct facility.
The facility consists of a main building, which houses most of the operations, including the public lobby, patrol office, weapons storage, two-vehicle automotive bay, car wash and vehicle fueling system and a secondary building for radio equipment, storage and gun cleaning. In addition, it features an emergency generator, a covered parking facility equipped with photovoltaic panels, a filtration system to recycle water used to wash patrol vehicles, a fuel island and a 120-foot tall communication tower. The new facility is awaiting LEED Silver certification.
