This four-phase project involved several buildings at the Britannia Cove at Oyster Point business park (also known as "The Cove" or "BCOP") near 101 in South San Francisco, Calif. The project involved several overlapping phases that were built concurrently until the campus was completed in 2019. Phase 1 construction included Buildings 3 and 4; Phase 2 involved Buildings 1, 2, and the parking garage; Phase 3 included Buildings 6 and 7; and Phase 4 concerned Building 5. Phase 3 features a living roof with lounge area and fire pits, while Buildings 1 and 2 have a large “Green Screen” made of living grasses and plants that is visible from the freeway and boasts exterior LED lights that display a rainbow of colors and programs.
A portion of the project scope included installation of roughly 45 electrical vehicle (EV) charging stations, including 29 in the parking garage.
Because of soil settlement issues that often arise on San Francisco projects, CEI's team buried underground conduit Styrofoam boxes so that pressure is relieved as as the soil settles and compacts.
