Historic Broadway Building

Oakland, CA



   This project includes the seismic evaluation and upgrade of the existing historic building for use by the City of Oakland as administrative offices. Fratessa Forbes Wong's role consisted of developing a lateral stability bracing system for the historically important building located at the corner of Broadway and San Pablo Avenue. 

   Due to the historic quality of the neoclassic exterior building motifs, all stabilization of the structure had to be provided without modifying any exterior features other than at the north wall of the building.
