Please describe the project specifications

The City Center Bishop Ranch project was a re-invention of a shopping center to create a new lifestyle destination where surrounding communities, cultures and commerce will converge. The Sunset Development Company (owners) brought onboard acclaimed architect Renzo Piano Building Workshop and BAR Architects to design a vibrant market and escape place in the heart of San Ramon, California. The new facility features 300,000 square feet of retail, dining and entertainment experiences, a luxury cinema, and a luxury whole-body personal fitness, training and yoga center.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The Tension Structure division of Eide Industries, Inc. was awarded the project, by Plant Construction, which was comprised of an escalator canopy and over one-hundred eighty-six (186) retail awnings and canopies. A tensioned structure was the original vision as the escalator canopy; however, the design was changed to an engineered glass canopy during the early months of construction. This change created several challenges which were faced and resolved by Eide from assisting with the re-design and re-engineering of the escalator cover from a fabric structure to an industrial glass canopy system, to transporting and erecting the glass panels in tight quarters in the middle of the construction zone, to installing over 186 awnings and canopies throughout the facility. Eide Industries' experienced and dedicated team were able to execute all this and much more to meet the grand opening of the new City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon, California.
