The location of this Project at 501 Tunnel Road is the site of the existing, fully operational waste-transfer facility for the City of San Francisco. The new Integrated Material Recovery Facility building was constructed immediately adjacent to the pre-existing building which houses the transfer facility.

DBD Structures designed, supplied and erected a custom designed and manufactured Star Building Systems steel framing system for this Project including rigid frames, cold rolled roof purlins and cold rolled wall girts. The manufactured steel rigid frames in the building provide a clear span of 155 feet.

Architectural metal roof and wall panels manufactured by Centria were supplied and installed by DBD Structures in lieu of standard Star Building Systems roof and wall panels. The Centria product was successfully integrated with the Star structural system through concentrated attention to detail and rigorous construction engineering.

Large waste material recovery/handling equipment was installed on the building slab by the Facility Owner?s independent contractor concurrently with DBD Structures? erection of the metal building. This condition required careful coordination by the project team to assure a safe working environment. Additionally, the ongoing waste transfer operations of the Facility Owner on the site mandated constant attention to jobsite safety and schedule coordination.
