Nicholson Continues Work on Transbay Transit Center

While continuing the excavation, earthwork and dewatering project for the Transbay Tower in the new Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco, Nicholson Construction was awarded a contract to complete critical foundation elements of the new bus ramp for the Center.

The Transbay Transit Center is a $4.5 billion project involving transportation and housing that creates a “Grand Central Station of the West.” This new hub will connect eight Bay Area counties and the state of California through 11 different transit systems. Nicholson will be constructing foundation support for a bridge that will be a part of the bus ramp. The contract includes the Installation of two 5-ft x 20-ft load bearing elements to a depth of 180 ft below grade as a foundation support for a new bridge pylon.

“Nicholson is excited to be a part of the ongoing transformation of downtown San Francisco through the development of the Transbay Transit Center,” said Luca Barison, Vice President of Special Projects for Nicholson Construction. “We are pleased to be contributing to something that will impact the region, and we want to continue to be involved with its evolution through the construction of this unique foundation solution.”

The overall project is set to be completed in 2017. Nicholson’s work on the new bus ramp is scheduled to be completed during the fall of 2014.
