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!

News: Boys and Girls Placerville Clubhouse Opens

Arch Nexus was pleased to attend the Boys and Girls Club Placerville clubhouse opening, which was a success in both attendance and reaction to the wide variety of activities available and rooms throughout the building. According to an article recently published by local paper Mountain Democrat, “The building itself seems to have been designed to inspire the kids with its soaring ceilings, expansive windows and colorful décor, including its green beams… the message it sends is: Come on in, have fun, learn and make friends- because you are valued.”

The new clubhouse replaces an old facility which was outgrown and in need of repairs, and was funded by incredible donations of time, materials, work and money.  It will be used by children and cherished by the community for years to come.

Those interested in volunteer opportunities can visit the official Boys and Girls Club webpage.
