Stanislaus Transportation Public Works Vehicle Maintenance

Project Overview

LDA Partners design for the County’s new 30,000 SF shop building brings the Public Works services group into the 21st Century. The new facility consolidates the sign, roads, bridges, and vehicle maintenance divisions under one roof for the first time in decades. 

This pre-engineered metal building features an expansive shed roof, covered drive-thru canopy, and a generous amount of daylighting through a continuous clerestory and 14’-0” laminated glass sectional doors area. This design strategy allows for comfortable light levels to work on equipment while reducing energy costs from light fixtures. The location also features a 5-ton bridge crane traversing the radiantly heated shop floor, allowing easier maneuverability of large equipment. 

Located adjacent to the Stanislaus County Public Works Administration Building, LDA designed an outdoor plaza with Santa Maria style grille and covered seating and eating area. This plaza is large enough to accommodate the entire Public Works department staff and is used for quarterly department wide meetings as well as regional public works functions.

Stanislaus Public Works Administration Building

Project Overview

After extensive interviews and design workshops, LDA Partners developed a space plan and building design for a new 19,000 SF Public Works Administration building.  The plan not only met the County’s functional and life-cycle requirements, but also resulted in a reorganized six department division allowing for much more efficient and productive workflow.  The new building includes an open daylight environment with every office and workstation having a view to the outside.  This not only reduces the electrical load but also increases office morale. Smart conference rooms are located in multiple spaces within the facility.  The exterior building design reflects the industrial aesthetic envisioned by the client.

Stanislaus Public Safety Center REACT

Project Overview

The REACT (Re-Entry and Enhanced Alternative to Custody Training) Center is a 51,000sf complex located within the 127 acre Stanislaus County Public Safety Center site. The REACT consists of 2 separate buildings connected by a courtyard. The buildings consist of a secure jail housing and less secure public administration building.  The secure areas are CMU and tilt-up construction with less secure areas being more conventionally framed.

The REACT Center siting conforms to a neighborhood plan for the Public Safety Center and takes aesthetic cues from the Public Safety Center Administrative complex across the street, and the adjacent Day Reporting Center.

This space is designed to be the desired destination for detainees. It has a more normalized environment, access to a variety of programs, outdoor areas, and a normalized space for family unification. The Re-Entry building has generous outdoor program spaces available. The campus encourages a normalized environment. The family unification room allows inmates to see their loved ones in a non-detention setting.

LDA Partners teamed with HOK to create schematic design and bridging documents for a Design Build Project Delivery, and remained on the project Team throughout Construction.

Stanislaus Day Reporting Center

Project Overview

As part of California’s AB 900 realignment program, LDA Partners lead the design for the Stainslaus County Day Reporting Center, which was part of the County's overall Public Safety Center Expansion. As the first Day Reporting Center constructed under AB 900, this project combines common program elements and effectively established a new model for Day Reporting facilities. Consisting of primary and secondary classroom and program space, substance testing, computer and administrative functions, the Day Reporting Center is a new beginning for many of those put on parole.

Stanislaus Public Safety Center Expansion

Project Overview

As part of California’s AB 900 realignment, Stanislaus County engaged LDA Partners to assist in the upgrade of its main jail facility. These projects add multiple new facilities, upgrades to the existing jail complex and integrates all components into an efficient, secure, operationally effective complex.  Project 1 is a $70.5 million facility that provides maximum security housing, medical and mental health housing, and inmate program spaces.   Through the design team’s efficient planning and design, we delivered more Scope (96 additional beds), without compromising operational efficiency, than was originally planned.

Stanislaus Public Safety Center Administration

Project Overview

As part of the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center Expansion project, LDA Partners assisted in the design of Project 3, a new $20 million, 33,600 SF facility that includes intake, release, transportation, video visitation and facility administration functions.  This location serves as the link between jail administration and operations, and will also act as the primary intake and release facility for the County.  Being directly connected to the remaining jail facility, this establishes an increased level of functionality and operational efficiency for the County, as well as additional physical safety for the officers.

Nevada County Operations Center

Project overview

LDA Partners was instrumental in guiding Nevada County to develop their first ground-up project in over fifteen years. The new Operations Center consolidates fleet maintenance, transit, and roads divisions to a single address and encourages a more efficient workflow and interaction between staff.

The site improvement area is 9.0 acres on a sloping parcel with terraced levels and retaining walls. Parking for heavy equipment vehicles, full sized buses, transit vans and light-duty trucks are provided in separate parking areas on site. A de-mudding and vehicle wash building are also incorporated into the project to maintain the cleanliness. A sand barn with covered material bins is also incorporated into the project to facilitate winter road care. 

The main structure is a pre-engineered metal building that houses administration offices, crew rooms, and fleet maintenance operations. Clerestory windows and skylights sends daylighting to the shop with eight heavy-equipment bays and four light-duty bays. The roof structure of all buildings are designed for future solar panel installations. The patterned CMU wainscot provides a durable surface that is required of a corporation yard.

Modesto Water Corp Yard

Project Overview

 The City of Modesto needed a new location to consolidate the Water Services Division from three separate and unsatisfactory locations into a single, well laid out, efficient corporation yard that would facilitate utility maintenance services, increase safety, and provide a better work day environment for City employees.

LDA Partners teamed with a general contractor to provide design-build delivery services to meet the requirements of the 21 acre development. The project has a 19,000sf Administration building for admin, engineering, and field crew divisions. The floor plan is organized around an open office concept that provides flexibility for staff and is flooded with daylight by the north facing floor to ceiling curtain wall and high clerestory windows. The field crew employees are greeted each morning with natural light through the eastern facing windows which look out to the corp yard for easy visual assessment of vehicles and equipment. City staff have direct sight lines to the heavy equipment vehicle gate to provide controlled access thru the secured fence line. Implementing clever design, this building can be easily expanded without any impact on office spaces or circulation.

Other structures on-site include a 12,500sf satellite Parks Maintenance Operation Facility Warehouse and 10,000sf Pole Barn for outdoor covered storage. The Park Ops building houses a shop, locker room, offices, break room, 4,100sf of 24-hour crew areas, and a 5,200sf warehouse. Skylights are provided throughout all spaces for daylighting and energy efficiency.

The site improvements include laydown yard, four-acre spoils stockpile stabilization; vehicle washout and tire clean out area; parking for visitors, staff, and heavy equipment; utility stubs for future expansion of buildings including a future fuel island and vehicle wash building. The civil design contains 100% of storm water run-off on-site which is naturally filtered thru bio-swales and stormwater planters before being diverted to retention basins.

  • Client: City of Modesto

  • Location: Modesto, California

  • 41,500sf of building improvements

Stockton Metropolitan Airport

Project Overview

The original Stockton Metropolitan Airport was built in the 1960’s.  In order to accommodate post 9/11 FAA security requirements and a growing number of travelers, LDA was hired to design a new 367 passenger hold room, security area, restrooms, concession services and to address other security upgrades throughout the facility.  This project included a 7,500 SF addition and remodel of the existing 1,000 SF space.

The project was complex.  There were multiple stakeholders: airport management, FAA, TSA, City, Homeland Security, and separate fire jurisdictions.  LDA not only was able to successfully lead the complex stakeholder group to consensus, but expedited the project, thus facilitating funding for the project.  The airport has realized a significant rise in revenue through additional passengers being served and flights being accommodated.
