This 424,000 square foot four-story building is the new terminal for international arrivals. The $1.27 billion project, dubbed “The Big Build”, was the largest capital improvement program in the history of Sacramento County. The design allows natural light to stream through a weave of structural steel, recreating the canopy effect common along Sacramento's tree-lined streets. The building is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
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.
Currently under construction, the 64-story mixed-use high-rise is located at 50 First Street in San Francisco. The 910 foot hotel, residential and office tower will surpass the height of the iconic Transamerica Pyramid and become San Francisco’s second tallest building. Erection of the structural steel for the 1.4 million square foot high-rise is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
