Delivering seismic retrofit for the iconic San Francisco Bay-facing China Basin office complex, our team performed shotcrete for vertical concrete walls and structural concrete, all while the complex remained occupied.
Capabilities performed included cast-in-place shear walls, slab on grade, slab on deck and Vapor Blast. To provide seismic support, we added 15-inch shotcrete to building walls in four sections, each a block long and six stories high.
We installed steel-frame buttresses to keep the building sturdy in case of an earthquake. And we made it all look good by creating an architectural finish, including curved walls and beveled concrete at each window to ensure nice views of the bay.
