ABOUT THE EVENT
Built in 1932, the San Francisco War Memorial Veterans Building is an icon of Beaux-Arts architecture and an important structure to many stakeholders, including veterans and the City of San Francisco. To repair pervasive water leakage – as well as to provide life safety and limit damage in the event of an earthquake – the award-winning rehabilitation of this historic landmark included seismic upgrades, waterproofing, mechanical improvements, and conservation of interior spaces and the building enclosure. In this webinar, we will explore this case study and discuss how the construction challenges and repair design relate to restoration projects across the United States.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Understand the design tradeoffs involved in treating historic skylights within a metal roof structure.
- Understand the opportunities and limitations for repairing historic steel windows.
- Learn how to prioritize facade repairs when working with a limited budget.
- Learn about the seismic vulnerabilities prevalent in historic buildings and understand the potential project benefits of employing a more sophisticated, performance-based structural analysis for a seismic upgrade.
