Hunters View Redevelopment Phase 2, Block 10 – San Francisco

project description
Block 10 consists of two new multi-family buildings totaling 95,037 gsf on a single sloping lot. Building A is a five story building consisting of four stories of wood frame construction (type VA) over a one story concrete podium (type 1A) which provides residential parking. Building B is a five story wood-framed structure (type VA). The two buildings are connected by a 5 story bridge structure which includes elevators. The ground level will contain a mix of uses including a community center, children’s center, and parking garage.

Due to the sloping site, the structural design required retaining walls and stepped foundations. The podium is a post-tensioned concrete slab supported by reinforced concrete walls and columns. Roof construction consists of plywood sheathing over manufactured wood roof trusses with sloped top chords to achieve necessary roof drainage while maintaining a level ceiling. Floors are constructed with plywood sheathing over joists. The lateral force resisting system consists of the plywood-sheathed floors serving as diaphragms spanning between plywood-sheathed shear walls.

Rivera Consulting Group is a sub-consultant to KPFF Structural Engineers. RCG’s responsibilities included complete vertical and lateral structural design except the post-tensioned slab for the Building “A” podium.
