Pacific Structures is a concrete construction company known for saving clients time and money. The principals, management and field operations staff possess hands on know-how won over three decades of designing and building some of the most complex concrete structures in California. This substantial expertise means that the company leaders have what it takes to engage the entire project team, and to push to optimize the structure for cost, quality, and schedule. At each stage of design, Pacific Structureâ€™s concrete experts provide the benefit of their valuable input. They continually challenge and evaluate the structure, testing it against hundreds of other buildings in their database for key parameters and details. Each analysis is informed by professionals with years of experience partnering with the best Structural Engineers on the West Coast. Each recommendation made has been tested in the field for quality and constructability by seasoned Superintendents. Out of this crucible comes the right design for each project. Once the design is optimized, Pacific Structureâ€™s veteran field operations team attacks the schedule and the details of the work on a day-by-day, pour-by-pour basis to ensure that every aspect of the project is preplanned and lined out prior to the start of work. When construction starts, the team is executing their plan, striving for even greater improvement and innovation. When the inevitable unknowns come that can derail a project, the Pacific Structures team responds quickly and effectively to keep the project on track and protect the clientâ€™s investment.

A concrete staircase spans five different elevations with 45-50 risers over just three floors. A Hetch Hetchy public works site runs across the south side of the project site preventing heavy machinery to operate in the area. This creates minimal laydown space and therefore the team has coordinated with the city of Mountain View to allow partial street closures to accommodate for concrete trucks and pumps.

This 438 apartment unit, five story wood frame building lies on a 9.5 acre lot. The unusual design of the building consists of a subterranean parking garage with slab on grade extending beyond the garage footprint, a mirrored elevated podium and wood frame structure above. Due to this design, footing supports must be constructed up to 8 feet below the slab on grade to alleviate weight on the subterranean wall. The Pacific Structures team has to carefully sequence construction so that weight is safely distributed throughout the entirety of the project to completion. Other challenges include smoothly coordinating countless trucks for the several concrete pours on the large job.
