San Francisco Embarcadero, CA

 

Description:

The Ferry Building's historic replica elements were crafted from molds made of full-scale patterns using wood, foam, and plaster. Parts are all FRP with fire retardant unsaturated polyester resin for durability; it also contains E Glass reinforcement which means they won't break easily when struck or vibration occurs on impact! In addition, the panels have embedded steel anchors that provide enhanced stability.

K&A Scope:

Design fabrication method, engineer, and manufacture second story interior historic brick arches to match remaining original arches, clearstory window frames, lower watercourse at second-floor level; do the same for exterior window surrounds on North wing of West elevation to match South wing window surrounds. Faux finish matches existing brick.
