Griffin Structures served as Program Manager for the $48-million Watsonville Civic Plaza project. The four-story downtown government complex consists of approximately 200,000 gross square feet with the City Library on the first and second floors, the County Courts on the third floor, and City Hall on the fourth floor of the building.
The bright, airy, and spacious library occupies approximately 42,000 square feet and it features a Kids’ Story-time Room that is circular with stadium-step seating and multi-media equipment. Other facility features include high ceilings, a cozily appointed teen room, and high quality finishes.
Also included as part of the Civic Center project was an appurtenant 500-stall parking structure with integrated access from various levels to corresponding functions within the government building. The parking structure, delivered first, was on time and under budget, in order to satisfy the requirements of transportation grant funding. The entire project was completed on schedule and under budget.
