Cynthia Gage, Director, Marketing | BCCI Construction

When Constellation Brands, a leading international premium wine company, was contemplating relocating its San Francisco office, BCCI Construction was engaged to evaluate the associated construction costs for a short-list of potential building alternatives. After considering its real estate options to create a more functional, open work environment that would also support its goals to attract and retain talent, Constellation chose to stay at Levi’s Plaza and leased 44,000 square feet adjacent to the company’s then existing office.

Prior to engaging a construction manager, BCCI’s team worked with the client’s asset manager and broker, providing extensive preconstruction services and due diligence reporting. Using BCCI’s proprietary Real Time Estimator software, this included preparing multiple budgets with a detailed account of all landlord and tenant costs which enabled Constellation to reap the most of their investment for the new improvements and make informed decisions about the design while drawings were developed.

The project was delivered using a design-build MEP approach. BCCI provided design assist services with some of the architectural elements including a custom wood feature wall at reception and a new structural steel interconnecting stair with exposed metal and concrete treads. By identifying ceiling conflicts before construction commenced, BCCI was able to avoid costly changes to the proposed construction plan. The existing open ceiling plan was integrated into the new open office plan, and existing condenser lines were reworked to accommodate the new office plan without compromising ceiling heights.

In addition to open work areas and private meeting spaces, the new workplace is accentuated with a fully operational wine bar and a relaxed, contemporary café, both for employee use as well as for entertaining. These two elements were something that Constellation lacked in their previous space and were essential in the new office to improve function and flexibility for company gatherings and events. Tastings from Constellation’s wine portfolio can now be swirled and sipped in a stylish, yet casual setting reflective of its culture and brand.
