50 United Nations Plaza

Client: U.S. General Services Administration, Pacific Rim Region
Site Location: 50 United Nations Plaza, San Francisco, CA 94102
Length of Contract: October 2014 - July 2015
Facility Type: Historical Landmark

Facility Description

50 UN Plaza is a major component of the San Francisco Civic Center. Constructed in 1936, the building served for 74 years without a major renovation and survived catastrophic earthquakes. In 2009 ARRA funded a major renovation to include environmental remediation; new mechanical, electrical, lighting, and plumbing systems; roof replacement and refurbishment of historic wood windows; restoration of the historically significant interiors and central courtyard as well as redesign of office interiors. 50 United Nations Plaza is the new home of the U.S. General Services Administration's regional headquarters offices for the Pacific Rim Region.

Scope of Services

Vobecky Enterprises' contract improved the functionality of the newly renovated building. The GSA UN Team made it very clear that all constructed items were to be as close to the historical elements as possible. We used parts from surplus inventory from earlier demolition to maintain the historical look and feel of the building. A number of doors and openings were created with no visual cues as to what's new and whats' old. Preserving the interior architectural elements resulted in an acoustical challenge. We improved the acoustics in 42 team rooms and applied safety decals thereby resulting in a safer and more functional space.

The Signage throughout the building was corrected to reflect the revised tenant assignments. Additionally, the 80 year old doors and thresholds were in dire need of repair. We worked diligently with the Architect and improved the weatherproofing of the doors with no visual compromise. The HVAC system was adjusted to support new occupancy levels. And new supports were also installed to support data cables. All work was executed with little or no disruption to tenants.
