Designed to eliminate water discharge into the Sacramento River and provide greater energy efficiency, the Central Plant at 6th and Q Streets in Sacramento provides chilled water for cooling, steam for heating and compressed air for controls to 23 existing State-owned office buildings in the downtown Capitol area. The complete project included a new facility, demolition of the existing plant built in 1968 and a new thermal energy storage.

At the time of its completion, the new facility was the most energy efficient central plant west of the Mississippi River. In addition, the design-build team’s solution provided the State with an all new campus with room for expansion, a LEED Platinum certification versus the required LEED Silver and no disruption to the existing plant’s operations during construction.
