1001 Van Ness Avenue is a new 270,000 sf. senior living building located in San Francisco’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood along the upcoming Van Ness Transit Corridor. The building site slopes upward from Van Ness Avenue and the building volume has been sized to respect the change in gradient, while the façade precast concrete and window wall system are designed to respect and reference the neighborhood. Setbacks and carveouts create opportunities for multiple landscaped courtyards, terraces, and a pool deck. The project also features a series of low-scale townhomes across the courtyard dedicated for independent senior living.

Scope of Work

FEC has been involved since design development providing direction, recommendations, and details for high performance and seamless construction of the building enclosure system. FEC has meticulously detailed all of the transitions, joints, corners, and intersections of each individual enclosure and façade type; including detailed sequencing instructions, scope breakdown, and three-dimensional vignettes. FEC will provide building enclosure consulting services through design, bidding, and construction including construction administration and onsite observations.
