October 14th marked a major milestone at Treasure Island Sailing Center’s new location thanks to Plant Construction leadership, Dunn Edwards generosity, and volunteer support from GeoGroup, HeathRIGHT 360, One Treasure Island, PCL Construction and TI residents.
Massive infrastructure improvements taking place along the northern perimeter of Clipper Cove required TISC facilities to be moved “around the corner” closer to Pier One. After the facilities were moved, we lost all access to our office space.
Lots of smart, hard work on the part of Plant and 30 volunteers made this look easy – IT WAS NOT !
First step was to reclaim portions of the old deck, and cut hundreds of feet of new decking.
Finally, reconstruction began with the deck foundation installation along the east side of the offices.
With deck nearing completion, blue paint begins to appear.
MEANWHILE – in parallel with deck construction the painting crew, using gallons and gallons of paint supplied by Dunn Edwards, began their “cover up” on the west side of the offices.
Here’s some photos taken as the paint crew was just getting started.
And more photos as the painting progressed.
This would not be a complete “On Clipper Cove” blog without a few more shots of The Cove. During a break in a day of decking and painting, there was boating. Deck and painting work in progress, with iconic Alameda cranes and Bay Bridge in the background.
Following the massive effort and outpouring of support on Saturday, Plant Engineering and our staff finished stairs and painting. WOWSER !
We often write about the kids we serve, their stories and smiles, and support from donors, islanders and San Francisco officials. This blog is about the very real (and EXTREMELY CHALLENGING) impact of the Treasure Island development on our facilities and the staff who work here. Fortunately for our staff, friends, and kids we support, we have a LOT of help from our friends.
So again, we pass along another big THANK YOU to Plant Construction leadership, Dunn Edwards generosity, and volunteer support from GeoGroup, HeathRIGHT 360, One Treasure Island, PCL Construction and the many TI residents who donate their time in support of TISC.
Regards from On The Cove,
