Workers Compensation Fund Office BuildingSubmitted by Jacobsen Construction
The new corporate headquarters for Workers Compensation Fund features a six-story office building and adjacent three-story parking structure.
WCF’s former home would not sustain a seismic event, so one of its highest priorities was to create a seismically sound facility. Therefore, the office building is a side-plate job, designed and constructed to withstand a maximum plausible seismic event.
During the design development and several months into the project, the owner determined it wanted the project to achieve LEED-Silver certification. The interior design development was quickly altered to achieve the new goal. However, the core-and-shell package was already underway. The project team managed construction credits with materials and waste stream diversion for extra points that took the project from LEED Silver to LEED Gold.
