Seismic Design

KPFF provided structural engineering for the renovation and seismic retrofit of two, 1940’s era timber framed warehouses to create 60,000sf of creative office space. The original structures were stripped down the original truss frames before the re-construction of the exterior walls, façade, and new shear walls meeting the current design building code. A new mezzanine level supported by a glued-laminated post and beam frame was added to both buildings, and original timbers were repurposed to frame a new 2-story structure connecting the adjacent buildings into a singular office campus.
