Mission Bay, San Francisco, CA

KCA Engineers has provided engineering consultation, utility analyses, land acquisition mapping, surveying, cost estimating and design services on this 313 acre downtown project since 1982. In a unique collaborative process, the major land holder, Catellus Development Corporation joined with the city's Planning Department in the late 1980's to cooperatively plan this award-winning project. KCA has been engaged by both parties at various times to provide planning and civil engineering services. Under a different Catellus management team, we engaged in a second, ultimately successful entitlement effort, in the mid- to late 1990's. This effort resulted in the inclusion of UCSF as a development partner in the project . Construction of infrastructure and development of user sites commenced in 2000.

Master Plan for the Lockheed Missile and Space Plant, Sunnyvale, CA
