This phase would also involve utility connections. The proposed permanent building will be located within a previously disturbed area formerly used for temporary SQSP executive offices. According to historical information, the project location is not considered a historical contributor to the SQSP Historical District All work shall be in compliance with CDCR Design and Construction Policy Guidelines, Building Codes, ADA, and State Fire Marshal (SFM) requirements.
