Midstate Construction Completes St. Clare at Capitol Park (formerly Capitol Park Hotel)

General Contractor Midstate Construction Corporation and Developer Mercy Housing recently completed the St. Clare at Capitol Park (formerly Capitol Park Hotel), renovating a historic 112-year-old hotel into 134 units of permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness in Sacramento, CA.

Designed by Page & Turnbull, the St. Clare at Capitol Park scope of work included substantial seismic upgrades; extensive structural repairs; two elevator replacements; complete mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire sprinkler system replacement; historical preservation; site and accessibility improvements, and conversion of existing hotel rooms to 134 studio apartments with full bathrooms, kitchenettes, and new interior finishes. Sixty-five units are reserved for people experiencing homelessness and living with a serious mental illness. All residents will receive case management and behavioral health services from service partners Telecare (via Sacramento County) or WellSpace Health.

Structural improvements were designed by Miyamoto International and performed by The Conco Companies. The structural scope of work included 1,038 cubic yards of shotcrete shear walls, 157 cubic yards of footings, and 540 cubic yards of ConFoam. The shotcrete shear walls were installed from the basement to the roof on perimeter un-reinforced masonry walls. In addition to the shotcrete walls, Spira-Lok Helical Wall Ties and Prosoco Stitch Ties were installed into the un-reinforced masonry walls to seismically affix the historic brick to the structure.

Additional features include four ground floor retail spaces, meeting spaces, community gathering rooms, offices for caseworkers to meet with clients, basement bicycle storage, and laundry facilities.
