Degenkolb Engineers Honored for the Caltrans District 4, Seismic Upgrade Project

A Merit Award was given to Degenkolb Engineers for the seismic upgrade of the Caltrans District 4 Headquarters, a 15-story 750,000 square foot steel moment frame structure that houses the San Francisco Bay Area’s transportation management center including its emergency response team.

A team under the direction of Degenkolb Engineers as prime design consultants employed extensive state-of-the-art analysis techniques, a building damping system, and full scale upgraded connection testing to design a retrofit scheme that will protect the building. The team was challenged with providing a seismic upgrade to the building while it remained in full operation, also while staying within the project schedule and budget limitations. Upon completion, Degenkolb’s team had met and satisfied all the goals and timelines of the owner.
