Contractor: Hathaway Dinwiddie
About the Project: Nova is working with Aegon, for the voluntary structural strengthening of floors 45 through 49 and the spire of the Transamerica Pyramid located at 600 Montgomery St. in San Francisco, CA. The structural strengthening component is comprised of strengthening the column/beam connections at each floor, and adding cross braces at each floor in the spire. In addition to the structural strengthening scope, maintenance platforms are being added at each level of the spire, and all existing and new steel is being waterproofed.
Nova has been instrumental is coordinating the multitude of design components, to develop the scope of the project, as well as working closely with the Hathaway to develop a schedule, phasing plan, and construction for this logistically challenging job with very little material laydown area.
Nova has also helped spearhead the permit approval process, which requires diligent and measured communication with SFDBI given the historic and landmark status of the building.
