“For Sonoma State, we expanded an existing building at Stevenson Hall by using shotcrete to build the shear walls around the original structure. We also created several tiered-seating classrooms with an intricate and architecturally appealing ribbed design on the walls, all while getting the job done ahead of schedule.”
