Brentwood Library steel

The steel erection has commenced on our Brentwood Library project, scheduled to be topped out mid next week.  The project has a unique sequence in that the steel is being placed onto temporary concrete “erection pads” and once in place, grade beams and footings will be poured after which the cross-laminated timber decking panels will be installed.  Stay tuned for updates.

Lucy Evans reopens!

We’ve been working on the Lucy Evans Baylands Interpretive Center renovation project since 2015 and it’s finally complete!  After navigating through Community meetings, Palo Alto design review, multiple preservation agencies and bay jurisdictions, and yet another bird nesting season, we’re proud to announce the Center is open again to receive it’s annual 130 classes and 80,000 visitors.  The project included completely refinishing the dilapidated exterior woodwork including re-siding, renovating the exterior decks and railings, adding bird nesting locations for the local swallows, and renovating the interior to include a much-needed ADA restroom upgrade.  In appropriate fashion, the center reopened to the public over earth day weekend.  Stay tuned, more photos to come.





1+ update

We’ve finally done our yearly check in on our 1+ pro-bono participation and last year our billable hours donated were approximately 8% of our overall.  We’ve been blessed to meet and work with some great non-profits, and last year saw projects for ROOT Division and NCTC complete construction.  This year we are currently working with Safehouse for the Arts and Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco and United Roots in Oakland.  Looking forward to what the new year has to bring, stay tuned for project specific updates!









Lazear Charter Academy

After many months of discussion, we have finally kicked off a new school project, Lazear Charter Academy in the Fruitvale district in Oakland.  Working with one of our favorite clients, Education for Change, and partnering with an Architecture firm we’ve always admired, Pfau Long Architecture, we are excited to get started.  The project aims to expand and develop the school’s existing site at 29th Avenue, which consists mostly of modular classroom buildings, with a new 2-story school building.  The effort will start with a programming effort and Community outreach to be completed early next.  Stay tuned for updates!
