The award-winning Lucas Digital Arts Center in San Francisco’s Presidio National Park consists of 893,000 square feet of high-tech office space for one of the world’s leading film and entertainment companies. As the home of Yoda, Darth Vader, and Indiana Jones, the campus includes 3 state-of-the-art theaters, a 1,500-car parking garage beneath a landscaped park, a child daycare center, and views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Palace of Fine Arts.
Webcor’s redesign of the underground garage eliminated the need for an entire level of excavation while increasing the number of subterranean parking stalls. This design innovation saved $10 million in excavation and construction costs.
To meet the project’s demanding concrete requirements, Webcor’s concrete team built an on-site batch plant and developed cutting-edge forms, allowing structural work to be completed months ahead of schedule. Webcor also used the latest virtual building tools to reduce the number of change orders, saving additional time and money.
This state-of-the-art campus is LEED Gold certified by the U.S. Green Building Council and is a stunning example of how a modern facility can perform while preserving the architectural style of its historic location.
