Jon Worden Architects completed the transformation of the former Esprit Clothing Factory in the Dogpatch neighbourhood of San Francisco into a wide range of mixed-use infill with condominiums. The project included the restoration and adaptive reuse of two brick and heavy timber warehouse buildings dating from the early 20th century. A portion of the 190 x 215-square-foot building was demolished. The two remaining high-ceiling structures were upgraded to current building code with structural steel interior seismic upgrades, with intermediate mezzanines at each level. Extensive shoring and foundation alterations were required to achieve the necessary floor heights and building separations.  Andy provided on-site laser-measurement of the historic brick structures and set up ArchiCad BIM model management to facilitate the insertion of carefully planned coordinated modular wet cells and unit types.
