Carpenter's Union Building 

Oakland, CA



   The Carpenter's Union Building is located at the foot of historic Jack London Square in downtown Oakland. The new building replaces an existing dilapidated structure, and has has been designed architecturally to fit into the style and flavor of the neighborhood. The three story structure is supported on cast-in-place concrete piles and grade beams. At the front of the building, a three-story special concrete moment-resisting space frame was used, while the sides and back utilize concrete masonry wall construction. The second and third floors and roof are wood-framed. A central atrium has been integrated to provide natural light to the interior spaces.
