San Francisco’s $1 billion Chase Center, slated to be the new home of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, recently celebrated a major construction milestone by holding a topping-out ceremony late last week.

The Project

Clark Construction Group and joint venture partner Mortenson Construction joined the Warriors organization on Sept. 14 to finish 10 months of structural steel work on the site. SME Steel Contractors installed nearly 10,600 tons of steel for the skeleton. About 17,000 tons have been used total.

“This is an exciting milestone for the Chase Center project team, and we look forward to coming together with our project partners to celebrate the thousands of hard-working men and women who have contributed to building this state-of-the-art venue,” said Jim McLamb, Mortenson | Clark Senior Vice President and Project Director overseeing Chase Center’s construction operations.

“The Chase Center project is making a lasting impact on San Francisco--not only in the form of a beautiful new sports and entertainment complex—but also in terms of jobs for San Francisco residents, meaningful opportunities for small businesses, and training programs to equip Bay Area residents with the skills they need to build lasting careers in our industry.”

The arena is the center of an 11-acre site that will also include two 11-story office buildings, 29 unique retail locations, 3.2 acres of publicly accessible plazas and open space, and a 1,000-space subterranean parking structure.

In total, 21 miles of piles have been used to support the arena, the last six of which were set in bedrock. Officials estimate that 110,000 cubic yards of concrete will be used by the completion of the project.

The project has 11 months left in the 26-month schedule and is slated to open by August 2019.
