Public Works worked with the San Francisco Tourism Improvement District Management Corporation (TID) to implement a series of tenant improvements at the Moscone Convention Center’s South, North and West buildings. The project not only upgraded the facilities, but employed a branding strategy to enhance convention visitors’ memories of San Francisco. The branding vision, as developed by HOK Architects, showcases our diverse cultures and communities within the natural beauty of Northern California, using a creative, colorful, bright and modern palette.
The Moscone Convention Center upgrade is a public / private project using a combination of private and public funds. We implemented an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method to coordinate the services of a Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM/GC) to offer constructability review and cost estimating services as well as to plan and organize the sequence of construction.
A key strategy for this project was to schedule the construction work without disturbing important convention activities. To this end, the construction was scheduled in a series of packages during the period December 2010 – June 2012. The project achieved LEED Gold green building designation.
