Some projects especially build on innovative design and environmental efficiency. A great example of this combination of innovation and efficiency is the 600,000 SF Federal Office Complex in downtown San Francisco. This LEED Silver project consisted of two structures separated by a sunscreen-covered public plaza and a 3,000 SF cafeteria. The main structure, an 18-story glass tower, showcases a natural ventilation system that was designed to replace the mechanical and cooling system. The building’s management system monitors interior temperatures and automatically opens and closes large floor air vents during the summer. Radiant floor heating installed in the tower’s slab floors assist during the winter months. The second structure has a one-story basement with limited underground parking, and a one-story daycare center.
With this project, we really brought order to the court. This new 577,000 SF federal courthouse sits on a two-block site. We were responsible for the demolition of a building on one block, without disruption of utilities above and below ground. We also removed hazardous materials (including asbestos) while existing space was occupied. The exterior of the 14-story superstructure is curtain wall, for rigidity to resist hurricane-force winds, while retaining flexibility due to blast criteria requirements. The facility contains courtrooms and chambers, U.S. Marshals offices, sally port and detention cells, office areas for U.S. Probation Office and U.S. Attorney’s Office, joint-use GSA space for conference/training rooms and food service areas. High-end interior finishes along with extensive hardscape/landscape features were included in the contract.
We help people live the good life — and The Grand at Diamond Beach luxury oceanfront condominium complex is a perfect example. dck served as Construction Manager at Risk with Design-Assist responsibilities for this unique 12-story (plus penthouse) facility with a Victorian-inspired theme, which contains 125 upscale units, each with a private veranda that affords ocean views. The 465,000 SF building includes an exercise area and steam room as well as a game room and two community rooms. Amenities include a full-size infinity pool, whirlpool and tot’s pool overlooking a private boardwalk adjoining the beach. dck performed in excess of 500,000 manhours without a lost time accident, an accomplishment resulting from a continuous and diligent approach to daily jobsite safety.
With the Façade Replacement project, we are now helping the building to be more than just a pretty face. After 45 years, the existing metal panel and glass façade of the office tower is in poor condition, resulting in high energy consumption for heating/cooling. dck is serving as Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) to furnish and install approximately 335,500 SF of new energy efficient curtain wall facade system, including a renewable energy photo-voltaic system on the 36,000 SF roof.
dck successfully completed the first Walgreens flagship store in Hawaii—a real “head turner” as patrons and passers-by alike stop and take pause to marvel at the unique shape and construction of this Hawaiian-theme-designed building. The new multi-story, 35,900 SF structural steel framed retail store has an oblique structural frame that is enclosed with an exterior glazed aluminum curtainwall system combined with sections of aluminum composite panels and decorative aluminum plate panels. The project also includes an attached 3-1/2 Level, 55,000 SF cast-in-place concrete parking structure to accommodate 72 vehicles.
dck’s pre-construction collaboration with all stakeholders was essential for this design-assist project’s success. dck led a proactive effort to identify and propose value engineering solutions for consideration to control cost and preserve the owner’s budget. This process allowed Walgreens to save $4 million.
dck provided building solutions for this client during the construction of a third parking garage between two others at HNL Airport. We were selected based on our improved design that decreased the building footprint but increased the number of stalls by 600 stalls with the addition of more floors. It provided greater efficiency and also gave the State an option for future parking expansion. The eight-level, 580,000 SF parking structure accommodates 1,700 vehicles plus another 100 stalls on an adjacent surface lot. Designed entirely of precast concrete with cast-in-place shear walls, the architectural character compliments the existing airport details by interpreting them in new ways with glazing systems and concrete form patterns.
"Outstanding & Excellence"...
Need we say more?
dck exceeded the expectations of the State of Hawaii, DOT-A, on the HNL Parking Struction receiving an Outstanding Evaluation from the State.
The project also received a 2010 Design-Build Award of Excellence from the General Contractors Association of Hawaii.
