CONCEPTUAL - 38,700 SQ. FT.
The Digital West project consisted of multi-faced uses of one commerical space. A lobby and large office space was designed, as well as an allotment for 15,000 square feet of colocation equipment, a mechanical and electrical space and an open building shell space for future consideration of auxillary and/or supporting infastructure area.
BUILT - 40,000 SQ. FT.
Orcutt Union Plaza is a mixed-use project, consisting of approximately 40,000 square feet of office, retail, and restaurant spaces. Project is of a western theme to fit within the historical context of Old Town Orcutt. The Plaza houses several local businesses such as Rooney’s Irish Pub and Naughty Oak Brewery.
BUILT - 9,000 SQ. FT.
An office and manufacturing mixed use project for an electrical systems engineering firm. Building A houses the office and assembling space, and Building B houses tenants which use the space for wholesale, retail and/or manufacturing uses.
BUILT - 8,000 SQ. FT.
A project consisting of a cylindrical concrete wall structure, a telelmetry antenna and protective dome structure serving as infrastructure for the USAF Western Launch and Test Range telemetry site. The Oak Mountain site is located at 2000 feet above sea level and is notorious for heavy winds.
BUILT - 90,000 SQ. FT.
SFO’s BART Station at Concourse H included the structural design of an airport entry and exit point for BART patrons, essentially allowing them to transfer to and from other airport destinations, including the rental car facility. The three-level, 600-foot long concrete moment frame structure, founded on driven concrete piles, was designed to BART’s strict displacement-based seismic criteria and has special blast resistant elements to protect aircraft from blast damage.
SLATED FOR CONSTRUCTION - 115,000 SQ. FT.
To accommodate the clean lines and large, virtually column-free common spaces, the structural design for the 175-room development integrates steel transfer girders and a tie-down system for shear walls that runs the entire height of the 5-story structure. The hotel is part of a larger redevelopment of the Mission Park business park, part of Silicon Valley’s Golden Triangle.
BUILT - 6,300 SQ. FT.
A wine tasting processing facility that achieved LEED Gold standard. To best utilize the site for solar gain and rainwater harvesting, the wine processing facility and the wine tasting facility are two separate buildings, fused together by landscaping and a patio. The project is designed to harvest 500,000 gal of rainwater, which is used for flushing the toilets and irrigating the vineyard.
BUILT - 72,000 SQ. FT.
Burton Elementary was an adaptation of a prototype school originally constructed in Nevada. Adjusting the design for California, the team addressed the state’s higher seismic requirements and sought to meet energy efficiency criteria established by the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS).
BUILT - 100,000 SQ. FT.
In order to maintain manufacturing operations for a global technology and data storage company, the conversion of an existing tilt-up warehouse and office building into a high-tech manufacturing facility was planned as three separate phases. Efforts involved the demolition of approximately 80% of the existing building and replacement with a new two-story structure founded on drilled concrete piers.
BUILT- 763,500 SQ. FT.
To combat the potential of soil liquefaction and differential settlement in a seismic event, the structural design of this 450 MW capacity solar panel manufacturing facility employed concrete fill decks on steel beam and truss framing, all supported on concrete mat foundations. The multi-structure complex included a 650,000-square foot, one-story plus interstitial space production facility, and an approximately 113,500-square foot, two-story utility pad and Hazmat area.
