News: Wadman Branding and Environmental Graphics Project Comes to a Close

Wadman Corporation approached Arch Nexus to develop an environmental graphics and branding design identity for their newly remodeled office space, which is now completed. This was a unique opportunity for Arch Nexus to utilize our design abilities beyond traditional architecture through the collaboration between our architects, graphic designers, and the client to create spaces that showcase our holistic approach for integration of environmental graphic and branding elements into the architectural design.

Wanting to honor Wadman’s legacy while looking toward to a new chapter of company history, Arch Nexus found unique ways to incorporate past projects, corporate identity, and culture into the design. These ideas included photography of Wadman’s history and construction images used on the walls, window graphics incorporated images from construction documents from past projects, and a tactile sign in the main conference room which incorporates Wadman’s Logo with an image of their founder, Jay Wadman.

ARCH | NEXUS SAC , News: Arch Nexus Sacramento R Street Office Opens!

After many arduous but very gratifying months of design and construction, the new Arch | Nexus Sacramento R Street office opened for business today! Relocation from the 3rd Street office occurred over the last couple of days of 2016. The renovated building will double the capacity for occupants to help meet the needs for our growing business in the Sacramento and central valley regions. Additionally, this new office incorporates an unprecedented number of sustainable design features, such as a cutting edge composting system, on site agriculture, on site water filtration and treatment, and energy independence by means of highly efficient electrical systems and a solar PV array, just to name a few.

17-01-13-interior

Our objective of designing and building California’s first Living Building has now crossed a major threshold and our focus turns to occupying and working in such a high performance building. Training for the employees has been underway for some time and systems commissioning is now in progress. Once we have registered 12 consecutive months of meeting some very strict performance standards our Living Building journey will be complete.

The new address for the Arch Nexus Sacramento office is:
930 R Street
Sacramento, Ca. 95811

Stay tuned for information regarding a ribbon cutting and gala at which time tours can be arranged. Until then we invite you to visit the Arch | Nexus SAC website at www.archnexus.com/arch-nexus-sac/ which will be updated regularly as we move through the performance period. Lastly, and as always, wish us luck as we pursue Living Building Certification in 2018!
