Fire Station No. 16 has been serving its community since 1938. With the help of the 2010 Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER) Bond, the San Francisco Public Works Department hired Vanir to provide project and construction management services to replace and upgrade the historical structure. Fire Station No. 16’s upgrades included seismic improvements to conform to current building codes, new building and life safety systems and ADA accessibility. The facility was also designed and constructed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
Vanir’s full scope of services included value engineering, cost estimating, schedule review, constructability review, bid marketing and schedule development.
Due to the fire station’s unique location between four residential structures and on a zero-lot line, the Vanir team also helped with public relations and keeping the community informed throughout the project.
