Macys.com 680 Folsom


Macys.com provides visionary new workplace for their employees in downtown San Francisco.

With the vision of a new workplace to facilitate the growth of their online services, Macys.com turned to MSA to design a tech worker friendly space in San Francisco. MSA delivered on this vision. The seven floors of new workspace maintain the panoramic views of the city while helping to unify Macy’s brand through visually tying the stores merchandising strategy with their online objectives.

The 250,000 square feet of office space in the South of Market provides state-of-the-art facilities for collaboration with adjustable work spaces, an interactive environment and multi-media capabilities and teleconferencing. 

Macys.com turned to MSA for their technology office space because they like their creative architectural and interior designs. The 16-plus-year relationship with Macy’s shows that MSA is providing more than standard design services, they are helping the best version of their client’s visions come to life. Designed to facilitate 1,300 staff, the space will be LEED Gold.

Macy’s is one of the biggest employers in the Bay Area and The San Francisco Business Times named Macys.com one of “San Francisco’s fastest growing technology tenants” and in 2012 sited the deal for their new 250,000 square-foot  mega-lease as the second largest of the year.

MSA helped with building selection and performed test fits on potential space using Macy’s unique criteria. MSA was also involved in the lease negotiations, helping Macy’s achieve tenant improvement credit and understand San Francisco tenant costs.

LOOP


MSA worked with management to create a growth strategy based on a completely new convenience store design.  The concept was based on a deep assessment of customer experience (CX) expectations across key growth segments, including women and millennial.  Using these insights the team developed the name, identity, interior and exterior design for the new concept set to be rolled out over 100 Shell sites in the next 5 years.  After successfully piloting the new design at an existing convenience store in Silicon Valley, LOOP was launched as a newly branded store.  The new store has achieved a 250% improvement in sales growth and is setting a new standard in the industry.

Alta Bates Summit Medical Center


MSA renovated an existing linear accelerator vault to accomodate new tomography equipment in this Acute Care Hospital.  The design solution addressed the specific technical requirements of the equipment while creating a comforting environment for patients.

The energy and mechanical needs and radiation requirements were carefully assed to ensure proper operation of the new equipment.  Precise positioning and alignment of the tomography equipment was critical for operation of the system.  

The remodel was completed during hospital operating hours without disrupting the surrounding facilities and staff.

San Francisco General Hospital


The Emergency Generator Replacement Project involved the design and construction of an emergency power system for both the existing Hospital and the future Acute Care facility.  The new, high-efficiency generator is expected to save the facility over $200,000 per year in energy costs while exceeding the requirements of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

MSA fast-tracked this project to compress the design and construction schedule, drastically reducing costs.  To mitigate potential negative impacts to hospital operations, MSA developed a phased implementation plan responsive to the concerns of the Hospital and key stakeholders.

Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation


MSA renovated an existing medical office space originally occupied by several un-associated physicians.  The space was redesigned to function as a contiguous clinic with three separate treatment "pods" including exam rooms, procedure rooms, and physician offices.

The "pods" used color and signage for identification and were defined by Medical Assistant Stations and sub-waiting areas.

The Care Center houses physicians in multiple specialties including Family Practice, Internal Medicine, and Nephrology, able to treat the entire family in a single location.

Based on clien'ts request to create an environment that would attract private pay insurers, MSA developed design concepts to enhance the patient and visitor experience, improve the efficiency of shared employee environments, and accomodate future growth and reorganization.  The concepts depict welcoming environments for patients, visitors, and staff.

A cohesive sense of tranquility and healing is established, using space, materials, and color to set the tone and provide indentity.  MSA used information from "Needs Assessment" interviews to develop master plans that best utilize limited spaces, reduce staff travel, and create peaceful lounge retreats away from high traffic areas.

Sutter Solano Medical Center - Exterior


This multi-faceted project includes structural (SPC) and non-structural (NPC) seismic upgrades, accessibility compliance, and facility standardization for an existing 5-level hospital.

Primary project goals include the integration of prior remodels to create an efficient and unified environment that is aesthetically appealing to privately insured patients.  The new entry design incorporates facade improvements that highlight the entrance.  Barrier-free pathways are woven through attractive landscape environments to create a sense of arrival for pedestrians.

This project required MSA to apply Lean Principles within an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methodology.  Informing the process with our knowledge of Best Practices, Green Guidelines for Health Care, and OSHPD regulations allowed us to fulfill the client's vision while maximizing cost efficiency.

Breathing new life into an existing suite while maintaining existing wall covering, draperies, seating, and lamps was the goal of the Embassy Suites Phoenix Airport remodel.  The MSA design team combined custom carpet, millwork vanities, armoires, dressers, headboards, night stands, and a new bar to bring a fresh, unified look to the rooms.  Finishing touches included accent lighting, mirrors, and brushed nickel hardware.  Especially challenging was the integration of an in-room sink vanity that complemented the other furniture.

MSA collaborated closely with Hilton, Hilton Supply Management Group, and Vendors to design within the established budget and meet critical milestone dates.
