On the Boards – Civic
From concept design through construction administration, Nacht & Lewis is pleased to share details of exciting new healthcare projects we are working on. Take a look at what we've got on the boards with highlights of our latest Civic projects in-progress.
Nacht & Lewis is in the Preliminary Plan phase of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Delano Office Replacement. This project incorporates the State’s Zero Net Energy standards, offsetting all energy used in the facility with renewable energy source on-site. In order to provide the DMV with the greatest possible value, our team uses an approach that emphasizes low maintenance and high efficiency solutions with photovoltaic power generation. Along with our engineering partners at AECOM, our team’s strategy is to provide the most efficient building shell possible with maximum day lighting and thermal performance using passive means. The goal is to obtain ZNE that has been tailored to the user and those maintaining the systems to ensure renewable energy resources are generated each year.
Mono County Civic Center
The Mono County Civic Center in Mammoth Lakes, California consists of the design and construction of an approximately 33,100 square foot, two story building, including site improvements. The facility is intended to consolidate the departments located in Mammoth Lakes from leased space to a single building and create a civic campus that currently includes Mammoth Lakes police department and the Superior Court of California. Nacht & Lewis has teamed with Roebbelen Contracting under a design-build project delivery. We were selected based on our experience on similar projects and great relationship working together. The design provides a strong public entry with separate staff entry for security. The entry is defined by its sweeping volume, large curtain wall elements for transparency and natural northern light. Secondary entries are defined by gable ends and care is taken to protect visitors from the elements via the lower canopy that breaks the mass of the building. The public entry leads to flexible public rooms for meetings and training. Continuing from the public entry, public counters are easily accessible off public corridors on the first and second floors.
