Stronghold began work on our newest GSA project, the Seismic Retrofit of the Frank Hagel Building in Richmond, CA.
The building complex does not currently meet the seismic safety standards. Steel moment frame, frame base anchorage, selected gravity systems, precast concrete cladding and auditorium roof will be modified to meet the adopted standards. In the basement and the 2nd and 4th floors, partitions and work stations will be removed around the steel moment frame and gravity columns to expose the column base and column splices. Cladding system improvements will be performed from both the interior and exterior of the building. This complicated project involves hazardous material abatement and will be performed in phases so as to allow for continued use of the building.
