Project challenged included its location within 20 feet of railroad tracks and underground Caltrans tunnel and facing difficult underground conditions (contaminated soil, high water table, heterogeneous fill). Design-build enabled us to streamline design duration, select the most efficient construction activities and provide creative measure to mitigate challenges.

The concrete shear wall is articulated with a dynamic pattern of reveals and form ties.

Project included the construction of two pedestrian bridges – one 180-foot span over three railroad tracks and one 80-foot span – linking garage to neighboring office and retail buildings.
