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.

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!

ARCH | NEXUS SAC , Publicity: Public Unveiling of Sacramento Office Design

Back on August 10th we held a community engagement event at our future R Street location in Sacramento. Neighbors and other community members were invited to meet with the design team and offer input and insight on what are the most important values to the R Street community. This engagement proved invaluable in thus far guiding the direction of the design. On October 8th we will be holding another event to demonstrate how these values have become part of what will be our new office and how it will become a piece of the R Street community fabric. Please join us!
