Project Summary

Nibbi Brothers was selected by the UA Local 38 for the renovation of the Joseph Mazzola Plumbers Union Training Center in San Francisco. The work was performed in four phases over a two and half year period on this 3-story, 30,000 square-foot warehouse building. The building is wood-frame augmented with steel. The project consisted of demolition of the existing building down to the shell and structural rehabilitation, increasing the strength of the existing foundation with larger footing and micro piles. Nibbi then completed the build out of the training center which consisted of office/conference room space, welding and soldering booths as well as HVAC stations for training.

The project is LEED® Silver and consists of the following sustainable building elements:

  • Flow restrictors on all faucets
  • Material for all cabinets and countertops that are free of added formaldehyde
  • Recycle at least 75% of construction waste
  • Only materials with Low (VOC) volatile organic compound are used
  • High efficient heating system
  • Fully commissioned building systems
  • Water efficient landscaping
  • Adhering to an Indoor Air Quality Management Plan
