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.

During January, the PG&E transformer install milestone was achieved providing permanent power to the project. New work began at the exterior of the site as various grading, landscape, and site elements began to take shape. Notably, the service yard/parking lot entry was prepped, and the northwest planter area was excavated, and the walls formed, reinforced, and poured. Interior work continued to progress throughout the building with waterproofing and tile work in the bathrooms leading the way on the finishes. Casegoods have arrived on site and their installation is underway. The ongoing work of carpentry, plumbing, HVAC, electrical and painting trades continues throughout the floors.
