State Compensation Insurance Fund is the largest workers’ compensation insurer in the state of California. The Redding District Office is a new, 75,000 square foot, three-story, Class-A office building located on an 11.5-acre site on a prominent intersection. The project features open offices, a café, extensive landscaping, and a Thermal Energy Storage System, which includes an array of six ice storage tanks, one air-cooled chiller, and distribution pumps. The chiller produces and stores ice during the night, and the chiller does not run during the on-peak electrical period, reducing demand by approximately 200 kW.
As the Technical Architect, Judy was responsible for implementing a fast-track, modified design-build process with multiple permits. The project required close coordination with the general contractor and review agencies.
