Pier 27 Cruise Terminal

The Pier 27 Cruise Terminal is a two-level, 91,000sf cruise terminal facility located at Pier 27 along The Embarcadero on San Francisco’s iconic waterfront. The Pier 27 Cruise Terminal project was completed in two phases. Phase one included core and shell and limited site improvements which was used by the America’s Cup Event Authority as the America’s Cup Village, the major entertainment, hospitality and spectator viewing center for the racing event during 2013. Phase two converted the terminal to become San Francisco’s primary cruise berth, replacing the existing facility at Pier 35. The new terminal allows for the increasing length and passenger capacity of new cruise ships and the amenities needed for an international cruise terminal. The new terminal is a point of entry for cruise lines and well as a large event space. BMC performed the installation of Storm, Sanitary Waste & Vent and Domestic Cold Water plumbing systems for the new facility. The project features San Francisco’s first siphonic roof drain system and BMC installed the first rainwater harvesting system to use ozone treatment using reverse osmosis filtering to make the gray water potable. The project was designed to achieve LEED© Silver certification.
