San Francisco’s Pier 70 Project Gets Historic Revamp with Winco’s Steel Replica Windows
Massive historic steel replica windows were used to breathe new life into several buildings at San Francisco’s historic Pier 70, one of the largest shipyards west of the Mississippi River. After years of disuse and deterioration, Pier 70 has undergone a massive renovation making its unique buildings beautiful, strong and viable for the next 100 years.
Now, the award-winning space serves as a design lab for Uber Advanced Technologies Group, where the future of land transportation is being re-imagined. Several other tenants also occupy the buildings.
Winco supplied replacement windows for Pier 70’s Buildings 115 and 116, but this was no ordinary replacement job. The many challenges of the waterfront site, historic requirements, and seismic codes called for creativity and collaboration by the entire design team.
