Civic Center Modernization

ABA lead a diverse consultant team to provide professional Planning and Consulting services to the City of Sunnyvale for the Modernization of City Hall, the Main Library and associated buildings at the Civic Center Campus. The project has included comprehensive community engagement, market analysis and architectural/space planning. The first phase of the community engagement process began in early 2015.

The Sunnyvale Civic Center Campus is a combination of facilities located between Mathilda Avenue and Pastoria Avenue just north of El Camino Real. The site includes City Hall, the City Hall Annex, Public Safety Headquarters, the Sunnyvale Main Library, and several satellite office buildings. Many of the buildings date to the 1960s when the workforce and residential population were much smaller (53,000 residents served by approximately 400 employees versus 147,055 residents and about 900 employees today). ABA and the consultant team provided services which informed City decision-making processes in support of the project’s goals.

The goals of the modernization project:

  • Improve service delivery to the public
  • Maximize efficient, functional and sustainable design
  • Create additional space
