Klassen Corporation performed design-build services for Granite Corporation’s new Bakersfield Branch Office. The project was recognized with a Beautiful Bakersfield Award in Architecture from the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce.
Completed in August 2009, Granite’s new 25,296 square foot branch office boasts a number of sustainability design features that aid in the functionality, comfort, efficiency and health of its staff.
In designing this new branch office, the current operational and future needs for the anticipated growth of the Bakersfield region were taken into consideration. Granite Construction sited the facility on land which had been previously mined by its operations over a number of years. The reuse of this acreage is a positive example of Brownfield Redevelopment — revitalizing previously unusable land.
