Alten Construction worked with the City of Sausalito and Glass Architects on the ground-up construction of two LEED Gold certified, multistory buildings, a fire station and a police station, on opposite corners at the intersection of Caledonia Street and Johnson Avenue in Sausalito. The fire station is an 11,000-square-foot building, consisting of structural steel, steel stud infill, concrete block masonry, shotcrete sheer walls and poured-in-place concrete slabs on top of a TUBEX Grout Injected Pile foundation. The police station is a 9,000-square-foot building constructed similarly and simultaneously with the fire station. This building was carved into an adjacent, existing hillside that supported existing residences. To accommodate new construction without disturbing these homes, a sequenced shoring system was put in place, using soldier beams, pressure-treated lagging and grouted tie backs. The finished buildings include an evidence room; a testing facility with locked boxes, a fume hood and a chemical testing apparatus; a full service kitchen and eating area; dormitory style rooms and entertainment/flexible-time areas. As part of the team effort to obtain LEED certification, Alten Construction installed materials with recycled content, such as light gauge metal framing; diverted construction waste from landfills and placed energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems.
