U.C. Berkeley Art Museum
Berkeley, CA

Client:  University of California, Berkeley
Architect:  Forell/Elsesser Engineers, Inc.

Seismic upgrade of a concrete museum building. Project involved drilling 26 piers 3 ½ ft. by 70 ft. deep in groupings positioned below each spiraling wing of the gallery. Heavy steel pipes, which connect to the building exterior through a system of yokes, collectors and straps, were installed to transfer the building loads to the piers. The museum remained partially open during construction work.
