Alamo Square Apartments
San Francisco, California
This project was a mix of low income apartments and entry-level condominiums. Four stories of wood frame construction were built over a parking garage. TA successfully addressed the acoustical challenges relating to the impact isolation of the buildings’ floor/ceiling system and windows; sound isolation for partitions, windows and doors; and plumbing noise control for the 4-story apartment complex. The site was a block wide infill project, the border of which was two busy commuter streets in the “western addition” of San Francisco.
