Along with serving food to employees, The Edge provides space for indoor and outdoor communal gatherings and includes amenities such as basketball, bocce ball, and shuffleboard courts, as well as a putting green. BKF provided civil engineering design services on the project, which included multiple design challenges involving the site’s proximity to the Bay, BCDC, roadway and pedestrian issues.
