Pinnacles National Park
The National Park Service hired RRM Design Group as part of the design-build team with Anderson Burton Construction to create new facilities for the west entrance of the park including an entry station, visitor contact station, maintenance building, visitor parking area and educational exhibits. Photovoltaic panels on buildings were used along with on-site well and waste treatment to make this project completely off-grid from a utilities standpoint. A new dormitory building and two duplexes for permanent and seasonal rangers are also part of the project. This project achieved LEED Platinum certification and uses many sustainable design strategies to minimize construction and operational impacts to this treasured national resource.
