The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) recently announced the 2010 winners of the National Design-Build Project Awards competition. Among this year’s winners in the Rehab/Renovation/Restore category is the Richmond City Center, which won for the Western Pacific Region—Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada.
The City of Richmond’s newly revitalized Civic Center is a multi-phase design-build project that includes the City Hall, Hall of Justice, Auditorium, and Plaza. Additionally, the project has achieved a LEED Gold rating from the USGBC.
Treadwell & Rollo’s role in this project began in 2006 when we were contracted by the Alliance Property Group to conduct a geotechnical investigation of the project site. We also assisted in the environmental waste management during construction in 2007. Ramin Golesorkhi, PhD, PE, GE, served as the Principal-in-Charge for Treadwell & Rollo’s geotechnical engineering services. For the environmental services, Jeffrey Ludlow, PG, was the Principal and Thomas Campitelli was the Project Manager.
We are proud of our contributions to this award-winning civic revitalization project, and we would like to congratulate the entire team on this wonderful accomplishment.
