Sunnyvale Civic Center | Sunnyvale, CA


The construction of Phase 1 of the New Sunnyvale Civic Center campus, located at the corner of El Camino Real and Mathilda Avenue, is expected to be completed by April 2023.

The city of Sunnyvale is building a brand new City Hall and Emergency Operations Center building to go along with tenant improvement work at the existing Department of Public Safety Building. This is the first phase of many that will transform this area into 6 acres of walkable open space. The future plans for the area include a Civic Plaza and outdoor amphitheater.


Phase one is the construction of the new four-story, 103,250 square foot City Hall and the two-story, 11,300 square foot Emergency Operations Center.

The City Hall is a Net Zero Energy and Certified LEED platinum building that will house offices for the City of Sunnyvale employees along with other functions used by the City. This building includes complex energy management systems including solar panels that will provide an estimated 1,099,000 kWh per year.

The Emergency Operations Center addition will provide dedicated space for an Emergency Operations Center and additional space for the crime lab, briefing room, evidence storage and locker rooms.


Due to the LEED requirements, this project had a large amount of integration to third-party systems, to go along with the Automated Logic HVAC controls we provided. Sunbelt worked closely with other construction trades to successfully coordinate the intricacies and massive amounts of integration required. In addition to the metering integration required for this building, we provided an energy dashboard as well as a Comfy system overlay to our Automated Logic Controls system.
