The Sacramento team reached a milestone at the Adventist Health Shared Services Campus in April 2019 with the City issuance of temporary occupancy, allowing Adventist Health to move into their new facility. The project team faced many obstacles in the weeks leading up to the Owner move-in date. Challenges included unique smoke evacuation system testing for a large open atrium, furniture installation coordination during completion of construction, completion of the extensive audio-visual system, and installation of several art sculptures. The largest sculpture included a 50-foot tall ceiling-suspended stainless-steel lighting fixture in the middle of the open atrium using a spider lift and a cable pulley system. Because Adventist Health is affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Adventist Health observes Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday Evening. Respecting our client and their Sabbath, our project team spent many of their Sundays on site completing City inspections and commissioning procedure to ensure a completion date in April 2019.
To call the Adventist Health Shared Services Campus a large project is an understatement. The campus, located in Roseville, California, consists of a 275,000 square foot 5-story office building with below-grade basement facility sitting within a 26-acre site. The campus was constructed to serve as the western headquarters for Adventist Health and houses more than 1,200 employees. Amenities in the facility include a health clinic serving the employees and immediate family members, large kitchen and serving area with audio-visual system to conduct cooking demonstrations for employees by full-time kitchen staff, treadmill desks, reconfigurable conference and meeting rooms partitioned with DIRTT walls, high-end finishes throughout, numerous training rooms with Skyfold partition walls, and several other dynamic features to sustain high employee satisfaction and morale.
The project is currently on track to achieve both LEED and WELL Building certifications, which offered up challenges of their own throughout the project. Swinerton and our Subcontractor teams diligently managed the requirements to achieve both these standards, and the efforts will not go unrewarded.
Adventist Health Shared Campus was the first project Swinerton completed with Design Firm Little Diversified Architectural Consulting out of North Carolina. We hope to continue to strengthen our working relationship not only in the Sacramento region but also with our South East locations. Not only can the project team be proud of the completion of the construction project, Swinerton has also remained a trusted partner to Adventist Health who expressed enthusiasm and appreciation for our team members and have opened the doors to future projects with Adventist, including Phase II of the campus project and local healthcare facilities.
