Market: Education

Scope: Structural Engineering

Developed a seismic strengthening scheme that included new concrete shear walls, concrete collector elements and a new wood roof diaphragm, and developed structural construction documents for the complete renovation and strengthening of the building, including new kitchen and dining facilities. The strengthening elements were placed to blend with the existing walls so that the original architecture and views of the Pacific Ocean were not impacted.
This project was completed by FTF Principal, John Dal Pino, while at a previous firm.
