Swinerton Builders San Francisco: February 16, 2012

Insider's View of a Construction Milestone: Midnight Pour at Trinity Plaza

The concrete trucks lined up along Mission Street in San Francisco late Friday night like tanks readying for battle.

Just before midnight on Feb. 10, they sprung into action. One after another they rolled up to the construction site at 1188 Mission St., where Angelo Sangiacomo is building phase two of Trinity Place, a 1,700-unit Central Market apartment complex.

Don Bourne, operations manager for Swinerton, said the slab varies from three to eight feet thick, with the thickest foundation in the core of the building where the elevator shaft and stairways are. The mat slab is held down by a series of 100-foot buried piles that prevent static water pressure from “causing the slab to float like a boat on a lake,” said Bourne.
