494 Forbes Boulevard Office and Laboratory

Healthpeak’s new iconic corporate campus in South San Francisco offers state-of-the-art amenities for life science and technology tenants. Salas O’Brien structurally designed this high-performance office and laboratory facility, including a parking garage, to the highest seismic standards paying attention to reducing floor vibrations for maximum flexibility. In addition, we employed dynamic structural engineering to make the most of budget, schedule, and architectural integration while maximizing seismic performance.

We focused on finding the best possible solutions to yield superior results within the allotted timeline and budget. From designing the seismic force-resisting system to integrating efficient materials with architectural integrity, we carefully crafted every detail of this corporate campus with precision.
