Rancho Cordova, CA – Global integrated design firm Stantec and Northern California based General Contractor XL Construction have been selected by UC Davis Health to lead the forward-looking design and construction of new administrative office spaces that will comprise another well-planned facility in the University’s portfolio. The space will house members from the University’s executive leadership team, as well as employees in the Finance, Human Resources, Revenue, and IT sectors. The project aims to improve collaboration and efficiency for UC Davis Health’s functional support teams by providing a central location that enables these operational groups to better serve the University’s patient network. The project construction manager is McCarthy Building Companies.

Located at 10850 White Rock Road in Rancho Cordova, Calif., the 194,000-square-foot office building was originally constructed in 1998 and will include structural upgrades as well as a modern design on both the first and second floors to foster a collaborative team culture well into the future. The space will comfortably accommodate the University’s current team while providing flexibility for future growth and the ability to adapt the space in alignment with the ever-evolving workplace.

The Stantec-XL design-build team will modernize UC Davis Health’s administrative space. The functional and aesthetic design will include open workstations for flexibility; numerous huddle areas for eventual use; conference rooms for team member collaboration and training; focus rooms and enclosed offices to facilitate concentration and privacy; as well as gathering spaces to support technology, socialization and work-life balance. The design will include ample parking for staff who occupy the facility, and the building will be designed in support of LEED Gold and University of California Carbon Neutrality guidelines.

“We pride ourselves on designing beautiful and thoughtful workplaces where employees can thrive,” said Kristine Townsend, Stantec Design Manager. “We envision this facility as a modern space with a nod to the future, and look forward to getting underway in partnership with UC Davis Health and XL Construction.”

“We are excited to partner with Stantec to play a role in helping UC Davis Health better serve their community,” said Craig Jamison, Healthcare Project Executive with XL Construction. “The new Rancho Cordova administrative offices are not only going to provide state-of-the-art workspace, but will also set a high standard for sustainability that we are proud to support.”

Stantec’s latest work on the UC Davis Rancho Cordova administrative facility builds on the firm’s longstanding relationship with the UC system. Stantec is currently providing lead architectural, interiors, buildings engineering, and landscape architecture services for the UC Davis West Village project, the largest student housing development in the US. The $575 million project—currently in construction with developer, the Michaels Organization—will add nearly 3,300 beds to the University’s West Village neighborhood.

“We are honored to continue our partnership with UC Davis as we look to bring the Rancho Cordova administrative facility vision to life,” said Richey Madison, Stantec’s Regional Educational Leader. “It’s exciting to design a project for one of the nation’s premier universities set to facilitate efficiency and collaboration in a modern setting.”

Stantec is working with clients across California and beyond to design active spaces that evolve with the future, and inspire, engage, and support business strategy and organizational culture. The global firm is known for high-performance workplaces that connect with the human experience, to enable employees, clients, and businesses to thrive.

Renovations for the UC Davis Rancho Cordova administrative building are set to begin in winter of 2020.
