Contra Costa County Capital Construction Projects
Contra Costa County has two major construction projects getting underway in Martinez. The County Administration building on Pine Street is being replaced with a more efficient and community-friendly space, and the Sheriff’s Department will be getting a new Emergency Operations Center and Public Safety Building.
Keep track of the progress of our projects on this website, and sign up below if you want to be notified when there are new updates.
You can view the presentation to the Board of Supervisors here. (Please note this is a large document.)
The County has now released a Request for Statement of Qualifications for design-build services to construct the facilities. Statements are due no later than 2:00 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017.
Stay informed as we begin work this fall by signing up for project news updates.
The new 71,000 square foot County Administration Building will be located at 1025 Escobar Street in downtown Martinez. It will be four stories in size, and house a variety of County departments, and include the Board of Supervisors meeting chamber.
Parking has always been a challenge near the current, aging McBrien Administration Building. The new building will have nearby parking for 250 vehicles, including an increase of approximately 75 spaces for the public. In addition, there will be public plaza areas where the 12-story building now sits at 651 Pine Street.
The new Emergency Operations Center and Public Safety Building will be located on the County campus at Muir Road and Glacier Drive in Martinez. The 38,000 square foot two-story building will consolidate and replace outdated facilities elsewhere on the campus and in the County Administration Building. The project will also include a Training Lecture Hall.
