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.
Degenkolb designed the separation of the fifteen-story plus basement concrete Moffitt Hospital and the Medical Sciences Building of similar size to satisfy SB 1953 requirements.
Degenkolb developed a retrofit scheme for the Bancroft Library, using a seismic strengthening approach that protects the contents of the space, as well as its occupants
Seismically strengthened and expanded the 42-year-old existing, original two-story reinforced concrete building, using ASCE-41.
Designed the renovation of UCSC’s Merrill Cultural Center and a portion of the Crown Dining Commons buildings.
Degenkolb designed the seismic retrofit of the $55 million renovation of eight wood framed residence halls at University of California, Santa Cruz’s Crown College.

Degenkolb offers a record of successful development and implementation of corporate seismic programs for prominent technology, life sciences, food and beverage, financial, and manufacturing companies.
To minimize disruption to the student occupants and symbolize the building’s modernization, innovative exterior strengthening schemes were developed and utilized.
Degenkolb retrofitted this three-story classroom building, which was previously determined to be “very poor” under the University of California Seismic Safety Policy.
Upgrades are designed to improve seismic performance to levels consistent with client goals related to safety and business continuity considering budget constraints, construction phasing, and ongoing building operations, and are based on current national consensus standards. A specialty is the upgrade of facilities with critical operations. In such cases, we bring value to owners and decisions makers through our ability to communicate risk and risk mitigation options.
