PCWA业务 & 管理中心

The Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) was created through an Act of the California State Legislature in 1957, with the objective of preserving Placer County’s rich water resources and protecting these resources from development and exportation by other interests.

By 1988, PCWAa€™s业务办公室, 客户服务, 数据处理, 政府, 会计, 工程, and Board Meeting functions were seriously overcrowded or relegated to trailers or other remote locations. To consolidate all of it’s operations and functions, PCWA purchased a 2.4 acre site with the intention of constructing a new Business and 政府 Center. However, the 5 person Board of Directors was split, on whether the building was necessary or not. 经过激烈的争论, 这座建筑被批准了, but with an extremely tight construction budget of approximately $2,500,000 (+/-$100/sf construction costs for the building and site work). PCWA had very intense space planning requirements for their new space, which resulted in a two-story building, +/-18,285 sf of fully developed space ion the First Floor, , + / - 6,666 sf of undeveloped future expansion space on the second floor. With commercial properties to the front, and residential properties to the side and rear, the building took on a crossover look between residential scale, 和商业存在.

The tight budget led to wood framing on a concrete slab, with gang-nail roof trusses and T1-11 Plywood Siding as the Structural sheathing and finished Architectural Siding. Windows were residential, and roofing was Composition Shingles and 3-ply BUR. The result met the budget, but proved to require ongoing maintenance. The Plywood Siding and Wood Trim required painting every few years, the windows were not energy efficient, and the roofing was not agreeable to the addition of photovoltaic panels and additional mechanical units.

Today, PCWA is the largest waster purveyor in Placer County. The PCWA业务 and 政府 Center still serves the Agency’s needs; the Second Floor is now occupied with the 工程 Department, and various interior improvements have been made to accommodate growth and direction. The 1993 building was overdue for exterior improvements. In 2015, the roofing issues were taken care of; sloped roofs with Composition Shingles were replaced with Metal Sales 垂直缝 Standing Seam metal roofing.

All exposed Fascias and trims were wrapped with matching metal. In 2018, Phase 2 of the Exterior Remodel occurred. The existing T1-11 Plywood Siding would remain for it’s structural value. The existing aluminum / 5/8� IG glazing assemblies were removed by sawcutting the nail-fin, and not disturbing the siding. A weatherproof barrier was installed over the plywood siding, and then covered with Metal Sales 24 gauge T6-A metal wall panels.

The PCWA业务 and 政府 Center is now weather-tight, with low maintenance exterior finishes, and quieter with the improved window assemblies.
