AE3 Partners/Robbelen team celebrated the grand opening of PG&E’s Auburn Regional Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 11 with enthusiastic participation from the Auburn’s business community, including Mayor Powers and Auburn Chamber of Commerce. The ceremony marks the completion of the three-year project that transformed Silicon Valley Coherent Inc.’s defunct laser factory, that had closed doors in 2008, into a vibrant, productive office campus serving PG&E’s diverse needs from administration and engineering to construction and maintenance. This facility is the first in PG&E’s next generation of service center campuses.
PG&E moved 300 employees from two existing facilities at Rock Creek Yard and Auburn Service Center into this new centralized 22-acre location within Auburn Airport Industrial Park which includes 7 individual buildings totaling over 250,000 SF. The new campus includes conference rooms, offices, workshops, material storage and fleet maintenance. The project has achieved LEED Silver.
