Pleasanton, Calif. (February 20, 2019) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on a new industrial building designed for SteelWave located at 2580 Industrial Boulevard in Hayward, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided architecture and civil engineering services for the project.
The project was comprised of a new single-story, 93,467 square foot industrial building situated on a 5.86-acre site. The unique shape of the in-fill parcel required special site engineering and a design that maximizes the building footprint while providing for the necessary parking. The building shares common access with an existing Costco store.
“Because of the high visibility of this in-fill location, which is surrounded by public roads, it was especially important that all four sides of this new industrial building feature an aesthetically appealing architectural design,” said Jim Terry, Principal, Architecture in Ware Malcomb’s Pleasanton office. “We also worked closely with City of Hayward on public landscaping, trails and lighting throughout the site development.”
“We were pleased to implement innovative civil engineering solutions to the grading challenges of the site, which included placing a large flat foundation on the existing steep slopes and establishing grades on all four sides,” added Michael Murphy, Director, Civil Engineering. “Ultimately, we were able to work within these constraints to maximize the square footage of the building and provide ample parking for future tenants.”
SteelWave is a full-service commercial, multifamily and mixed-use real estate management, operating company and investment management firm. The General Contractor for the project was Lusardi.
