Monterey County Government Center


Salinas, CA

Project Type

In 2013, Capital One financial services abruptly vacated its former Salinas offices at Shilling Place, leaving vacant a sprawling corporate campus with over 200,000 square feet of interior space and sea of existing cubicles. Monterey County saw a unique opportunity to consolidate eighteen different disparate departments under a single roof, and engaged WRD Architects to conduct a massive programming effort that involved civics and logistics in equal measures.

WRD Architects’ design transformed the existing one- and two-story former financial services buildings into a vibrant centralized campus for the County of Monterey. WRD provided full project oversight from project conceptualization to final interior furnishings with services that included programming, needs assessment, development guidelines, master planning, final permit documents, bidding assistance and construction administration.
