Degenkolb is providing construction engineering support on the renovation and seismic retrofit of UC Berkeley’s Giannini Hall, which will protect and preserve the historic shell of the structure.
We worked with general contractor Clark Construction to develop innovative tower crane foundation and tie-in schemes that leveraged the permanent structure and minimized removal operations.
Degenkolb served as the construction means and methods engineer, converting the 1930s era facility into an 83,000 square foot world-class museum.
Degenkolb was prime consultant for the SPC4D / NPC4 seismic upgrade of the 1964 steam plant, which serves Loma Linda Medical Center and Loma Linda University.
We deliver custom Construction Engineering solutions that meet every project need whether those needs are sticking to a hard construction schedule, satisfying stringent performance requirements, or finding alternative approaches to a challenging problem. We have performed successfully on a vast portfolio of Construction Engineering projects throughout the firm’s 76+ year history, including many projects involving existing buildings and difficult sites. Each and every project is unique and requires consideration of many site-specific issues, including the needs of all project stakeholders, the sensitivity of existing adjacent structures, and the geographical makeup of the site.
