State Facility Long Range Planning Study

In an effort to better understand the condition of the state’s building inventory, the California Department of General Services (DGS) contracted with Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum (HOK), an internationally renowned architecture and engineering firm, to conduct independent analysis of state-owned office space.

This report is the culmination of nearly a year’s worth of effort by HOK to assess each state-owned office building in the Sacramento region. These buildings were then indexed by HOK using a methodology and process widely recognized by and consistent with building industry standards. 

Based on this independent assessment, all buildings reviewed in this study have been identified as safe, serviceable and functioning. HOK also identifies the state buildings with the greatest need for repair or improvement.

Executive Summary

Statewide Assessment (Updated September 2016 to reflect the balance of the state)

Ten-Year Sequencing Plan for Sacramento

The evaluation team, comprised of engineers and architects, visited each of the 29 buildings included in the Sacramento region study. The evaluation team reviewed available engineering studies and construction documents to familiarize themselves with the physical conditions of each building. The evaluation team conducted a two to three day walk-through of the building to observe building systems and components, identify physical deficiencies, and formulate recommendations to remedy any deficiencies.
