B&A’s James R. Herman Cruise Terminal at Pier 27 in San Francisco has received a Merit Award from the Miami Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for projects over 50,000 square feet. The design award banquet took place at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts last Friday, October 30th.

The multi-purpose cruise ship terminal is a true one-of-a-kind. The 91,000-SF terminal is a modern, sophisticated facility sized to optimally process today’s modern mega cruise ships’ high passenger volume in a short amount of time. It’s one of only a handful of terminals to allow public access to the waterfront while not in use for cruise operations, a unique amenity when one considers the security required at international ports of entry in a post-9/11 world.  The terminal is also equipped with a 5-tank, 42,000 gallon rainwater harvesting system used for toilet flushing in the terminal and for irrigation of the facility’s gardens. This system and other sustainable features garnered the project a LEED Silver rating by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Congratulations to Jim Rowe and the rest of his team on this wonderful accomplishment!
