Mission Bay Block 26B consists of two, five-story buildings (Buildings 2 and 3) containing a total of 219,000 sq ft of laboratory, research, and development space located within San Francisco’s Mission Bay redevelopment zone. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals and the corporate headquarters of the drug maker Nektar currently occupy the two buildings in the complex. The project included a public park, located between the two buildings and a local parking structure. BMC performed the office core and shell, consisting of 5 floors of bathroom cores and Storm, Sanitary Waste & Vent and Domestic Cold Water plumbing systems. This project is currently pursuing LEED® Silver certification.
The Mission Bay Block 27 Parking Structure is a 469,767sq ft, seven story elevated parking structure located within San Francisco’s Mission Bay redevelopment zone. The structure contains 1,420 spaces and serves adjacent laboratories and offices. The garage was constructed as part of a large healthcare/biotech development, which includes the new UCSF Mission Bay Hospital. Construction of the structure was coordinated with other project teams building simultaneously on the surrounding parcels. The project was also constructed with new street and site facility infrastructures. BMC performed the Storm and Sanitary Waste & Vent plumbing systems for this structure.
The UCSF Sutter Street Parking Garage is an 88,500sf structure with 6 levels of parking above grade, and 1 level of parking below grade. The structure contains 222 parking spaces and provides parking for patients, visitors and healthcare providers with preferential parking for carpool and electric vehicles. BMC performed a complete installation of the CO exhaust system for the structure.
Alta Bates parking structure is located in the heart of an operating hospital campus in downtown Oakland, CA. Located along Hawthorne Avenue, the parking structure was built into the side of a hill and consists of six stories along the northern façade and four stories along Summit Street. The structure is 392,000 square feet and contains 1,064 parking stalls. BMC performed the Storm, Sanitary Waste & Vent, and Domestic Water plumbing systems.
The construction of Terminal B was part of the San Jose International Airport’s plan to modernize and renovate the airport to meet the growing demands of the rapidly increasing commercial and residential populations of Silicon Valley. The project included a new Terminal B, renovation and expansion of Terminal A, new surface parking and roadway improvements. Terminal B, which replaced Terminal C, is a 163,000-square-foot building designed to handle up to 8.5 million passengers annually. Terminal B is the first passenger terminal in the western United States to be certified LEED® Silver. BMC performed tenant improvements on the HVAC system for Terminal B’s North Concourse including VAV’s with fan coils, exhaust fans and all new prefabricated sheet metal duct work.
BMC was part of a team lead by BCCI that renovated a high security, three-story structure that contains the offices of multiple departments at the SFO International Terminal. All renovation and construction was completed while the building was occupied and in use. BMC performed installation of the pre-fabricated duct work, installed new air handlers, VAV’s and fans and replaced the existing split systems. The project is pursuing a LEED® CI Gold certification with the U.S. Green Building Council.
BMC prides itself in the capabilities of our Detailing Department. Our large staff includes seasoned veterans with an average of 20 years of field experience working side-by-side with the best and brightest university degree-educated detailers and drafters to give BMC a full range of detailing expertise for every project. Our detailing department uses the most state-of-the-art 3D modeling software to generate intelligent building models for BIM management and to accelerate our sheet metal and piping fabrication.
BIM (Building Information Modeling)
Our detailing department has proven to be an industry leader in the Bay Area for utilizing BIM to manage our building data during pre-construction trade coordination. We use Navisworks software to manage clash detection, coordinating our virtual models with other contractors, which is critical to identifying conflicts during the design phase rather than out in the field after construction begins.
BMC uses state-of-the-art modeling software to create 3D building models that contain detailed intelligence on all aspects of the design, right down to the manufacturer’s specs for the parts and equipment being used. BMC uses Autodesk’s CAD-MEP+ software (formerly CAD-MECH and CAD-DUCT) to generate accurate models for HVAC, process piping and plumbing fabrication, and BIM coordination.
