March 9 - Joint Meeting with SEAOCC (Virtual Event)
SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity (MOSAC)
The old PG&E powerhouse, originally constructed in 1917, was the largest-generating power plant in the area at the time, using steam turbines to generate power for the Sacramento area. The powerhouse was operational until the 1950s when it became decommissioned. For the next 65 years, the building sat vacant and was an eyesore for all that passed by on I-5 due to frequent graffiti and use as a shelter for the local pigeon and bat population.
After years of partial repairs and hazardous site material mitigation, Buehler teamed with Otto Construction and Dreyfuss + Blackford Architects in 2018 to begin the transformation to the new museum, which is now nearing completion. Join Larry and Scott on March 9thto learn more about the history of the PG&E Powerhouse and get an inside look at the unique design features of MOSAC!

Larry Jones, a Senior Principal, and Scott Mulligan, a Senior Associate, formed the Buehler team for the MOSAC project located on the Sacramento River riverfront just North of downtown Sacramento. They pair often on projects, bringing their collaborative spirit and can-do attitude to achieve and exceed project goals. Scott’s ability to solve problems relating to unforeseen conditions paired with Larry’s technical expertise and love of historic structures made them the right team for the job!
