SAN FRANCISCO, CA—(December 6, 2016)—Sprig Electric, one of the largest electrical contractors in the Bay Area, announced today that its San Francisco office has recently completed the electrical infrastructure for Transbay Block 6, and has been awarded a contract to build the electrical infrastructure at 505 Brannan in San Francisco.
Transbay Block 6 is a 32-story, 409-unit luxury high-rise complex in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) District. The complex, located at 299 Fremont Street, includes an apartment tower, townhome residences, a ground-level courtyard and street-front retail, all 3 blocks from the Transbay Transit Center. The San Francisco office of Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) designed the apartment community, and will serve as the architect of record; the general contractor is a joint venture between Balfour Beatty and Cahill Contractors LLC.
The 7-story building at 505 Brannan will become the home of Pinterest. The architect is Heller Manus and the General Contractor is Swinerton Builders. Sprig Electric will provide electrical services and low voltage infrastructure for the 150,000-sq.-ft. facility, as well as install the security system. Completion is scheduled for the fall of 2017. Sprig Electric has also been awarded a contract to complete electrical services for 500 Folsom, a 42-story apartment high-rise known as Transbay Block 9.
