The infill addition to the Boalt Hall School of Law offers 54,000 sq ft in a three-story structure. Because the new addition houses a large law library with document storage on two below-grade levels, the structure has zero tolerance for water ingress. SGH was the building enclosure design consultant responsible for waterproofing the addition to the library.
