The Red Building consists of two towers that together contain 400,000 square feet built above a seven-story parking garage. The East Tower rises 16 stories and the West Tower tops out at the 14th floor. The geometry and the 120’ cantilever near San Vicente Boulevard added to the complexity of the steel erection.
Standing over 800 feet tall and with 58 stories, 181 Fremont offers breathtaking, uninterrupted views of San Francisco Bay and its urban waterfront. This distinctive mixed-use high-rise has 432,000 square feet of office space as well as 74 ultra-luxury residences on the top 15 floors of the tower.

The 704,000 square foot building will house 71 courtrooms at Union and C streets. It will feature significant improvements in security, as well as better safety and improved access and efficiency for county residents. A pedestrian bridge connects the three-story lobby atrium to the nearby Hall of Justice, which will continue to be used for civil cases.
Key speciality contractors from design and construction were integrated into the project very early on, which resulted in a more efficient design that both reduced cost and accelerated the schedule. The structural steel was fabricated and erected $7.2 million under budget and 6 weeks ahead of schedule. The erection was completed with zero change orders and one quarter of the typical number of RFI's.
Occupying an entire city block, this 13-story, 274 bed acute-care hospital is being built in a spirit of innovative collaboration that embraces a LEAN culture. The 740,000 square foot hospital includes 119 viscous wall dampers that absorb energy to reduce any lateral movement caused by earthquakes and wind. The system also reduces the amount of structural steel required in the building. It is the first of its kind in North America.
