San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP)
As a subconsultant to AECOM, AE3 provided architecture and engineering services for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Design / Build Sewer System Improvement Program (SFPUC SSIP). The SSIP is a collection of capital improvements that will help San Francisco meet the endorsed levels of service goals for regulatory permit compliance, system reliability and functionality, and sustainable operations of the City’s sewer system.
The project required the installation of significant amounts of underground infrastructure that required the replacement of medians, streetscapes, and existing landscape. We developed architectural, building and landscape guidelines and standards for the various design/build packages; developing master plans and preliminary designs for various deliverables; reviewing completed designs by separate design/build teams against the SFPUC standards, and determined the condition of existing facilities and their ability to be adapted to current or new program uses.
Together with the AECOM JV team, AE3 helped to maximize the project’s opportunity to enhance the City of San Francisco by ensuring that the building and planning design was developed as a coherent whole, and provided mechanisms to ensure that the design intent was reflected in the various design/build projects. The team worked together to address a multitude of disciplines under a single contract that included civil, architectural and landscape services, and assured that the SFPUC met their goals for this project without sacrificing time or quality.
