Market Square


This ambitious downtown San Jose repositioning project showcased a little bit of everything that Metcon can do. Featuring designs from two of the area's best architects Modulus and Habitec the transformation included exterior and interior overhauls. The exterior project included a European glass rain screen that was installed 12 stories up the building's exterior skin. It was anchored to the exterior structure by a structural steel web system designed by esteemed San Francisco engineer KPFF. Crews worked off swing stages and material cranes. The 10 and 12 story buildings were both completely repainted and the site received to hardscape and landscape. The project also consisted of two lobby renovations, a fitness center, multiple tenant improvements, carbon fiber seismic strengthening, 2 small restaurants, a barbershop, Orange Theory Fitness, common area restroom and corridor remodels, installing a new window washing equipment system and davits, and multiple Tenant improvements of all shapes and sizes.
