San Francisco Ferry (WETA) Terminal Expansion Project

Scope/Solutions

The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority undertook the Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion Project to upgrade the terminal facilities and expand ferry service, including travel from San Francisco to Richmond and Treasure Island. The project includes renovating an existing passenger gate, constructing new ferry gates and vessel berthing facilities, and improving the landside amenities.

SGH served as the structural engineer of record for the project and worked with the project owner to provide technical assistance during the permitting process, including helping them develop a seismic instrumentation plan. We designed the following structures:
  • A 400 ft long pile-supported promenade with three new ferry gates
  • A 12,000 sq ft pile-supported plaza featuring a granite relief map of the San Francisco Bay
  • A 106 ft pedestrian bridge
  • Other related appurtenances and topside structures
