For the renovation of this important historical building I was tasked with building the BIM model of the structure, using the 1913 original drawings.
I was tasked with establishing the BIM model for this project. Once received the CAD drawings of the schematic design, I created the Revit model in order to produce the planning submittal, and later the CD set, which I worked on until about 50%.
This 200,000 SF office building has a fairly complex curtain wall geometry which required a careful review of the curtain wall submittal during CD and CA. In fact, several in-s and out-s, together with convex and concave corner conditions, in both horizontal and vertical directions, created challenging curtain wall details. I produced studies of some of these conditions for client approval and contractor clarification purposes, especially around the main entry lobby. I have also produced some studies for the interior of the main lobby. Other tasks for this project included amendments of the CD set to include detailed area calculations, and miscellaneous shell plan revisions.
When asked to help with the CD of this lobby, I developed the details for the security desk backlit LED panel cladding, the folding GFRG ceiling, and the stone cladding. I was also able to identify issues with the framing of the dropped ceiling being built, and point out to the contractor the inconsistency with the CD set.
A $1.3BL mixed use project in the SOMA district of San Francisco, the two million square foot development comprises two high-rise towers, along with impressive new public spaces and important new pedestrian links through downtown. Together, the buildings provide 1.35 million square feet of office space and 650,000 square feet of residential units.
As BIM coordinator for the Heller Manus team, I have been working on the SD documents for the project's four level basement.
In particular, I was involved with the 3D modeling of the garage, the parking, and the distribution of the dense program for the hotel and residentail component of the towers above (Locker rooms, bike storage room, hotel programs such as laundry and admin offices, etc.).
This high-rise tower is designed to be erected on top of the former San Francisco Mining Exchange building, a Neo-classic Greek temple facade with a richly decorated interior hall structure to be preserved and restored. I have been working as the Senior Building Professional on the CD set, and as Revit Specialist and designer for the Mining Exchange, the historical portion of the project.
