In order to make way for two new 60 story concrete towers in the new Rincon Hill district of San Francisco, the distinctive Bank of America Clock Tower (formerly the Union 76 Tower) had to be removed. The 240 foot tower was demolished, one triangular shaped floor section at a time. The entire tower was safely brought down to the ground in only 40 shifts. Additionally, Silverado demolished the attached 3 level parking structure and 100,000 square foot office building.






Boarding Area A SFO airport

Boarding Area 'A' San Francisco International Airport

After San Francisco International Airport constructed its new international terminal, the old Boarding Area A impeded the airports expansion to allow more international jetways. Silverado's project managers and superintendents have done extensive work at the airport, and were awarded the contract to demolish the 140,500 square feet boarding area building and its foundation. The extensive foundation system for the rotunda portion was removed in 6 working days, enabling a rapid expansion.
