WARose Construction retrofitted an old warehouse to create a spacious new convenience store in Oakland for Golden Gate Petroleum

Golden Gate Petroleum Convenience Store, Oakland

W.A Rose worked with Golden Gate Petroleum to transform a large empty warehouse into a fully functioning new convenience store. We started by removing a small concession stand located in the front of the warehouse, then laid out the walls for two large ADA bathrooms, a walk-in cooler and back storage rooms. We also added additional striping and ADA walkways to the store’s exterior.

Project Challenges

The concrete slab floor was out of level, which required structural work. We installed all new plumbing, electrical, water and HVAC. The concrete slab floor was actually a double slab, which increased the difficulty of plumbing the building. The old front door and rollup door were beyond repair, and we replaced them with a customized new system. We also discovered the property’s main sewer line was cracked and would not be able to support the additional restrooms and water flow, so we had to replace more than 150’ of line out into the city sewer main.

The Results

A brand new convenience store that makes it easy to pick up a snack after filling up at Golden Gate Petroleum’s gas pumps!
