BCCI Completes GREE International’s North American Studio
The new headquarters of GREE International, built by BCCI Construction Company and designed by Quezada Architecture
San Francisco, CA – BCCI Construction Company (BCCI), the Bay Area’s premier commercial contractor, is pleased to announce the completion of global mobile social gaming company GREE’s first North American studio. The 65,000-square-foot space is housed in San Francisco’s China Basin, home to some of the industry’s leading social mobile gaming companies, as well as top web and social mobile experts.
A leader in preconstruction, Pre To Post Quality Control and client service, BCCI’s team offered extensive knowledge of existing building conditions to help the client, architectural team and commercial real estate firm Cresa Partners plan and execute this fast track tenant improvement project from cold shell condition. To meet the accelerated schedule fueled by the gaming studio’s rapid growth, BCCI’s in-house permit expediters obtained permits quickly, so the construction team could remain agile as design and construction implementation occurred simultaneously. The result is an innovative, flexible workspace reflecting the camaraderie of the game development process – complete with a brainstorming lounge for team breakout sessions and a games room and dining area decked out with classic arcade machines, an abundance of snacks, and a serving area for daily catered lunches and dinners. With no private perimeter offices, the studio receives abundant natural light and a birds-eye view of AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants). Based on architecture firm Quezada Architecture’s ergonomic design concept, the new space facilitates GREE’s vision to attract top Bay Area talent and build unique games from the ground up for the Western Market.
BCCI has built a reputation for completing office renovations for companies like GREE that are both new to the city and looking to seamlessly expand their global reach. Other recently completed projects in the technology sector include the Skype headquarters.
