Uber Mission Bay 1 & 2San Francisco, CA

AlfaTech recently completed Uber’s innovative new ground up office headquarters. This ultra-high performance building focuses on an occupant-centric workplace. The interactions between the occupants, the buildings, and the ambient, were at the heart of the architectural and engineering systems. AlfaTech assisted the architectural design team with optimizing performance by assessing various utility, façade and wind studies. Life-cycle cost analysis, energy benchmarking, and computational fluid dynamics were critical tools to inform the design effort.
