BergerABAM Flores Lund Consultants provided structural engineering final design services for the voluntary seismic upgrade of this landmark 13-story steel frame building with a cast-in-place pan-joist floor system. Services also included general upgrade of the existing lateral system to meet the minimum required lateral force based on the state historical code; lateral reinforcement of the cupola frame; the addition of a full-height north exit stair; and miscellaneous incidental structural improvements, including a new entry canopy, infill of existing floor openings, and creation of new localized floor openings.

The project received Recognition of Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Historic Preservation from the California Preservation Foundation Design Awards 2000.
