Strategy & Services: stok was hired as Project Manager, LEED Consultant, and Commissioning Agent for the design and construction of the California Wellness Foundation’s new 6,000 SF Downtown Oakland office space. With its dedication to the well-being of Californians through public program sponsorships, the Foundation’s wellness values aligned closely with stok’s B Corp certification and JUST label, as well as the LEED, Living Building Challenge, and WELL rating systems. Through this values alignment, stok as Project Manager guided the client through lease review, budgeting, contracts, building owner coordination, scheduling, design, permitting, vendor selection including AV, IT, furniture, and security, and construction.
Project Details: stok’s full involvement in the project from a project management, sustainability consulting, and commissioning perspective allowed for a seamless project workflow and strong communication channels between the entire project team, including remote coordination with the Los Angeles-based architect. The aligned project team was able to use an integrated project process that was highly collaborative and efficient. As Design and Construction Project Manager, stok helped the client navigate strict standards from the building’s landlord, and led a challenging elevator security project. stok’s LEED and Commissioning Team was also engaged in the full gut remodel early on and worked closely with the team to ensure all credit requirements were met and properly documented.
