The facility is used by the California Department of Education and it complies with the California Division of State Architect’s requirements. This steel moment frame building features “fritted” glass facades, a café with expansive exterior openings at the first floor and community function / multi-purpose and office space with a large entertainment deck on the third floor. Exterior materials are primarily glass, metal roofing and handrails and honed sandstone as the non-glazed walls. Beyond the glass exterior walls, special building features include a glass elevator in the atrium, custom glass stairs suspended from a space frame truss in the atrium and custom terrazzo floors.
