FAIRFAX, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- Rose Construction today announced the completed construction of the new Argonne Clubhouse and Playground located at 455 18th Avenue in San Francisco's Richmond District. The Grand Opening was the scene of celebration and activity on Sunday, February 4th. A few hundred people including Mayor Newsom and Park Commissioner David Lee attended the event. San Francisco funded the project, and the design was by architects Lizzy Hirsch and Damon Louie, both of the Recreation and Park Department, Capital Improvement Division.

The park ( features:

--  Basketball & tennis courts
--  A toddlers' play area with swings & a sandbox
--  Picnic, stage, & grassy areas
--  A clubhouse for indoor activities with a full kitchen, an office, a
    reading area, & bi-fold doors that open to the outdoors as weather permits
Notably, Rose Construction exceeded the requirements set forth by the City of San Francisco's Waste Recovery, Recycle, and Reuse Program, and they opened the park on schedule despite challenging 2006 weather conditions.

"Rose Construction, untested in the San Francisco public works sector, turned out to be a dream of a partner.

The end result was a quality project that met both budget and schedule." -- Lizzy Hirsch, Recreation & Park Department, Capital Improvement Division, city of San Francisco
