San Francisco—T1 Partners, a joint venture of The Allen Group LLC, EPC Consultants Inc. and Parsons, selected thinkstep’s flagship SoFi software platform to implement, manage and track sustainability initiatives for the $2.4 billion, multi-year Terminal 1 redevelopment program at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Terminal 1 was built in the early 1960s and renovated in the 1980s. The new terminal is scheduled for completion in 2022 and is targeted to achieve at least LEED Gold certification. T1 Partners’ goal is to make SFO the cleanest, greenest and most sustainable airport in the world. In order to achieve this, T1 has established multiple projects in various phases and hundreds of deliverables within the program. Through the SoFi software, project managers will be able to provide access to information, monitor progress, document and report in real-time on the quantitative sustainability achievements to both the internal airport and public stakeholders. T1 Partners are able to collect and analyze the data within the SoFi Software tool and use it to prepare regular reports on sustainability outcomes for the airport.

“With SoFi we are able to collect sustainability design and construction data on multiple projects and then use this data to report on how each project in the program is performing relative to the airport’s sustainability goals and objectives,” Anthony Bernheim, FAIA, LEED fellow & sustainability manager for The Allen Group, said in prepared remarks. “Since Terminal 1 is such a far-reaching project that will last many years, it is important that T1 Partners work with a flexible platform that is easily customizable. For these reasons, T1 Partners selected SoFi and are very happy with our ongoing results.”
