A 112 unit, 16 story high-rise building built on the side of San Bruno Mountain in South San Francisco. At time of completion, the 178’ building was the tallest residential building in the city. The job was a design-build project for Rosendin Electric, including the smoke control, security, and communications systems. The building consists of a 112,000 square foot 5-story parking structure with 11 stories of residential space totaling 156,000 square feet. Common spaces within the building include a main lobby, social room, exercise room, and garden plaza. Included in the electrical design was one 2500A 120/208 service and bus duct riser for the condo units. A second 2000A 277/480V service was used for the garage lighting, elevators, and fire pump. Due to limited site conditions the 400kW emergency generator was placed in the parking garage on the 4th floor.
The Rosendin Electric performance on the UCSF Mission Bay Hospital project has been outstanding. The detailing effort is one of the best that I have seen. Value Engineering suggestions from experienced electricians have provided great savings to the project without compromise to the program. The overall coordination and planning process among the numerous stakeholders on the project has been exceptionally smooth and very complete. Continuous budget updates and estimating support with challenging contractual demands and ever changing market conditions have been worked through with great professionalism.
