In the early morning hours of February 20, 2015, the Cosumnes Community Services District Administration Building suffered significant fire damage. Located at 8820 Elk Grove Blvd., the 94-year-old building was a familiar landmark in the community. While retaining a significant portion of the historically-significant brick exterior walls, much of the damaged roof, building systems and interiors will be replaced with new construction in order to transform the building into contemporary and energy-efficient office space.
MFDB Architects, Inc. developed a comprehensive design plan that will better use the existing square footage, modernize the space, and provide amenities that are desirable to staff. Diede Construction, Inc. will begin project construction in June 2017 with an estimated 12-14 month construction period.
Construction is Underway
The view from Elk Grove Blvd. may look like very little construction is going on at this site, but looking in from the south side, there is a lot happening! It has been one month and Diede Construction, Inc. has hit the ground running, starting with demolition and the removal of the south exterior wall and interior walls throughout the facility. Demolition will continue in the main area, including removal of the basement slab and breezeway leading to the adjacent Elk Grove Recreation Center. In the west wing, interior shoring has begun and exterior shoring will soon be removed for work on the windows. This page will be updated as work progresses. Stay tuned!
