The Hotel Durant, built in 1929, is listed on the City of Berkeley Landmark Preservation List. A year after construction, the hotel added an east wing for a total of 145 guest rooms. SGH was retained by prospective owners to identify seismic vulnerabilities and develop conceptual retrofits and cost estimates for the hotel. After the building was purchased, SGH designed a seismic retrofit.
