Fallon Gateway is a Target-anchored regional shopping center serving the northern California cities of Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore. California TrusFrame collaborated with Whiting Turner and Stanforth Development’s specifiers to rethink how Fallon Gateway’s commercial/retail buildings could be framed faster while also reducing building costs.
The team worked together to identify and eliminate all costly and time-consuming conventionally framed areas including the roof deck, roof mansards and walls. By utilizing prefabricated structural building components instead—such as Smart Components, wall panels and roof trusses—the construction team was able to significantly reduce framing cycle time (total man hours and overall time), material costs as well as job site waste.
