-Team placed first in each design-build category-Team met aggressive two-year design and construction schedule


Mission Hall marks the transition of the university's hub to Mission Bay. The six-story building brings together 1,500 multidisciplinary researchers and doctors. UCSF's goals included meeting a highly aggressive two-year design and construction schedule via design-build delivery. When the need arose to compress the schedule, we worked directly with trade subcontractors, re-analyzing structural components to keep the project on schedule. We regularly participated in the Big Room, anticipated potential problems, and developed solutions for immediate application as needed during construction.


Leavening peerless structural engineering skill with humor, philosophy, people skills and, above all, a consummate understanding of San Francisco's permitting process, [Alan] saw this project through.
