SAN JOSE, CA January 24, 2020 Bergelectric’s work on the Sacramento State University Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex won two (2) awards at the Associated Builders & Contractor (ABC) NorCal Excellence In Construction Award Gala on January 24th. Bergelectric took home top honors for the Specialty Contractor Project between $5 Million and $10 Million category along with a “Greener Tomorrow” Award for the project’s green/sustainable features.
The recently completed CSU Sacramento Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex project is a new 95,000 square foot multi-story Science Laboratory building. This design assist project posed unique electrical challenges that have been overcome by preconstruction design involvement, BIM coordination, prefabricated lab assemblies, and both field and office support. The Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex now houses both wet and dry biology laboratories, chemistry laboratories, laboratory support spaces, faculty offices, and administrative areas. In addition, the Science Complex includes an Observatory and Planetarium intended for public engagement. The project began construction in January 2017 and was completed at the end of last year.
