Fisherman's Wharf Hotel

Rice Lake Glass in the Golden City

With very little available parking, area congestion, and an occupied hotel, this project came with unique and significant challenges.

A hotel located in Fisherman’s Wharf, a busy neighborhood in San Francisco, CA, was looking for window replacement services. Rice Lake Glass traveled 2,000 miles away from its home base to complete this project successfully and quickly.

Small Town in the Big City

This window replacement project was made difficult by the location far from our home base, in the middle of a large city. All of our supplies and products were driven cross country to San Francisco to be used to remodel the hotel.

Avoiding Area Congestion

Upon being chosen for the project, Rice Lake Glass drove cross-country with a large truck and trailer and four dedicated crew members.

This project’s general contractor was looking for a commercial glass subcontractor he could trust. Rice Lake Glass was chosen, despite being 2,000 miles away. Because of area congestion, we were required to arrive at 2:00 a.m. each day, get unloaded before 4:30 a.m., and park 40 miles away.

Staying Open Through Construction

Throughout the window replacement process, the hotel stayed open and occupied the entire time, adding another challenge to the project.

Rice Lake Glass continued to work quickly and precisely to get the project done on time, while still maintaining the decorum of the facility. Ultimately, Rice Lake Glass completed the project successfully and the hotel boasted brand new windows that were both beautiful and efficient.

"I will say that while dealing with Rice Lake Glass and Door, the entire experience from start to finish was a real honor. Each of the crew members demonstrated a degree of professionalism that is unmatched in the marketplace today. I would also like to point out their level of craftsmanship was in a class all its own, not to mention how each followed building procedures to the letter of the contractors handbook. "
