AGS is currently providing geotechnical engineering services for Transbay
Block 5. Transbay Block 5 is a new mixed-use office development near the
corner of Beale and Howard Streets. Geotechnical staff have performed
three borings and eight CPTs and lab work is currently underway in AGS’ inhouse facility. The Project is a 42-floor class-A+ multi-tenant office building comprised of approximately 700,000 rentable square feet. The base of the office tower will have an outdoor landscaped public space, retail tenants and a multi-story lobby.
It is anticipated that the project will have an underground parking structure
that may be three stories below street level. It is anticipated that the project
will utilize a steel superstructure with lightweight concrete on metal deck floor slabs, cast-in-place concrete structure for the lower portion of the tower and post-tensioned cast-in-place reinforced concrete substructure on a matt or grade beam system over a deep foundation system.
The project will be environmentally focused being designed to achieve LEED
Gold certification and incorporate numerous sustainable design strategies
and highly-efficient building systems. This approach to design of Park Tower
will provide a healthy work environment for occupants, contribute to the
community with an environmentally sensitive building and provide lower
operating expenses to the tenants.
