Floating Barge for San Francisco Fire Department Fireboat Station No. 35 Arrives in the Bay Search

Swinerton-Power (the joint venture of Swinerton and Power Engineering Construction Co.), Liftech Consultants Inc., and Shah Kawasaki Architects welcomed the arrival of the steel float from Shanghai for the high-profile design-build project, San Francisco’s Fireboat Headquarters at Fire Station 35.

This project is funded by the San Francisco voters-approved 2014 Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response Bond and is managed on behalf of the City’s Fire Department by San Francisco Public Works, working in combination with Swinerton-Power.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection cleared the float, and it is docked currently at Pier 1 on Treasure Island, where the construction of the approximately 14,800-square-foot fireboat station will commence. Once complete, the new headquarters for San Francisco’s response to all maritime calls for service and post-disaster operations will be floated west across the Bay and anchored in place behind the existing Fire Station 35 at Pier 22 ½ where it will undergo start-up and final commissioning procedures.
