AE3 provided As-Needed Construction Management services for the Moscone Convention Center Expansion project. The Moscone Center is the largest convention and exhibition complex in San Francisco. It is comprised of three main halls: two underground halls underneath Yerba Buena Gardens, known as Moscone North and Moscone South, and a three-level Moscone West exhibition hall. 

In order to meet growing needs, this project expanded the center by reconfiguring Moscone North and Moscone South to create up to 140,000 square feet of new exhibit space, a new 75,000 square foot ballroom, and 100,000 square feet of new meeting space. The project also included utility relocations, underground excavations, renovations of existing structures, and new above ground structures. 

Working as an agent of the owner, the AE3 team provided cost estimating and cost control, and supplemental services such as office engineering, project controls, underground utility coordination/permitting, change order review and negotiation, construction administration and schedule review. The Moscone Center project was designed to meet LEED Platinum certification with a goal of making it the most environmentally sustainable convention center in North America.
