Sather Gate Garage
Located in downtown Berkeley, the Sather Gate Garage is a five story parking structure with a ground level retail mall. Working with Degenkolb Engineers to determine the feasibility of adding two more levels of parking, the building was found to be structurally deficient during this study. The new seismic strengthening consists of an exterior metal bracing system at the North and South elevations. The existing brick facing and concrete lintels were replaced with stainless steel cables as guard rails. At the base, a stainless steel pin-joint connector is highlighted with a stainless steel bench.”
