Pier 15 Video Case Study Highlights Uponor Radiant System

Pier 15 Exploratorium Includes Innovative Radiant System

The Exploratorium project at Pier 15 has become a model on innovative sustainable design with the goal of becoming the largest net-zero energy museum in the United States. The 800-foot-long pier, erected nearly a century ago and vacant for a number of years, has undergone a gut renovation, including major structural repairs to its pilings to make it earthquake-safe for the next 100 plus years. The massive construction project yields approximately 330,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, and the finishing touch is an all-glass observatory that anchors the back of the new complex at the end of the pier’s 800-foot projection into the bay.
