Seals Construction provided services to the State of California for the construction of a new main kitchen at the Porterville Development Center (PDC). The major components of this Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) project included the construction of a single story 29,000 square foot main kitchen building, the installation of food production equipment, and construction of a remote 1,000 square foot storage structure. The project also included site improvements, excavation, concrete, steel, plaster, skylights, coiling doors, cold storage rooms, an HVAC cooling tower, roof-mounted air handling units, fire protection, security, lighting and electrical, data and communications, transformers, and a switchgear.
The PDC is one of several California state-operated facilities that serve people with developmental disabilities, providing general acute medical services, skilled nursing services, and intermediate care services. The project required extensive work and cohesion with the State of California, strict adherence to OSHPD standards, and through our commitment to green building practices, the project surpassed the requirements of LEED Silver and received a LEED Gold certification.
