This new building meets a variety of needs for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF), including teen services, education, health and life skills and multi-media. Nibbi Brothers provided BGCSF with preconstruction and construction services, and served as Owner’s Representative for the organization’s new Mission District Clubhouse located at 901 Alabama Street in San Francisco. The historic facade of the original building from 1928 was kept in place, and a new structure was built behind it. The new Mission District Clubhouse is a 15,000 square-foot building, combining existing wood-framed elements with a new concrete tilt-up panel portion. The new club houses a gymnasium, teen center, learning center, multimedia center, arts and crafts room, multipurpose room and administrative offices. The Clubhouse will serve children ages 6 to 18, up to 150 a day.
The project achieved LEED Gold EBOM (Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance). Some sustainable building elements include:
- Radiant heating system in the historic building floors
- Low-velocity forced air in the gym
- Operable skylights and abundant day lighting throughout
