Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty selected 1465 N. McDowell Rd in Petaluma as the site for their new Sonoma County office. In an effort to promote collaboration between multiple business units, the Petaluma office houses 3 companies under one roof.
The 85,000 sf, 2-story suite supports 528 employees. 475 workstations populate the open office environment, with 18 private offices, 12 conference rooms, and 4 coffee bars with break areas.
Creating and maintaining an aggressive schedule was Nova Partners’ main focus for the Allianz Petaluma Tenant Improvements. In order to accommodate the client’s requested dates, Nova Partners oversaw design and construction over a 21-week total duration.
Waterproofing became a main focus for the project as the shallow water table at the Petaluma location was taken into account. A moisture barrier was applied to the entire first floor slab. Additionally, the slab edge was exposed and sealed, and new French drains installed in the building perimeter landscape.
