1 De Haro

A New Dawn for Mass Timber: San Francisco gets its first CLT project

Our concerns were really about trying to fit into the neighborhood and give back to the neighborhood, and figure out how to take what was a material supply yard and take it into the next century"

1 De Haro is the first CLT commercial office project not only in San Francisco, but in the entire state of California. Featuring a mixed construction method, 1 De Haro maximizes the roof area, the wood floor office levels, and the two-story, concrete ground floor which accommodates space for light manufacturing and a mezzanine level.

Since the mass timber building is lighter than a concrete or steel building of similar size, the project team was able to reduce the cost of the foundation and utilize fewer deep piles for anchoring the building.

Project Highlights

  • Features approximately 100,000-sf of CLT, glulam beams and columns and a timber concrete composite floor.
  • The use of mass timber equates to roughly 2,000 metric tons of stored carbon.
  • The wooden core is wrapped with a glass curtain wall. The result was an aesthetically pleasing “jewelry box” building design situated in a triangular shaped site.
  • The structure utilizes some of the longest single span cantilever floor plates in North America by adopting a timber concrete composite floor assembly with spans up to 25 feet.
  • DCI helped the client reach sustainability standards by performing a retroactive Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA).
