An addition to the existing American Bridge world headquarters, this structure of steel frame, brick, limestone, curtain wall with Solar Ban 60 glazing, and standing seam metal roof was completed without interruption to daily business functions in the office.

Construction of a unique four-story steel frame and masonry building with commercial spaces and artist workspaces occupying the first floor and 18 residential, loft-style, for-sale condominiums occupying the upper floors.This project was part of a community revitalization program in the center of the Penn Avenue East Liberty District.

[Sota's] attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship, and responsiveness to clients' needs are indicative of your commitment to providing the highest level of service to your clients.

WYEP is a non-profit radio station that chose Sota Construction Services early in the design process. This was done to ensure that this fast track project would be built as green as possible and to meet the tight schedule and budget. The challenges of the site required deconstruction of existing buildings, 75' deep piles, and close coordination on this dense urban site. Sota worked with dggp Architects (now FortyEighty Architecture) and Steven Winter Associates to evolve a thermal envelope that was highly efficient yet met the budget.

This women's shelter provides space for ten families, plus working space for the administration staff. The scope of work included removal of most of the original building while preserving the facade, construction of a new building behind the preserved facade, and a new construction addition to the left side of the building.

Because this building is considered to be among Pittsburgh's most historically significant, the selective demolition, foundation underpinning, and general construction were sequenced with care, in order to preserve the original facade.

This 15,000 s.f. office building is constructed on 1.5 acres in McCandless and serves as space for the corporate offices and administration staff. It emphasizes a work environment that connects to the outside (views, defined outdoor spaces, etc.) and the inclusion of nature/natural elements within the building.

In completing this project, Sota Construction Services renovated a 45,000 s.f. former ice manufacturing facility into a dynamic series of artist studios. Substantial selective demolition was required, along with structural steel work. Monumental-sized period-style aluminum windows of appropriate proportion were also installed. All work was completed within strict adherence to standards set by the United States Secretary of the Interior regarding the renovation of buildings of historical significance.
