Project Details

PASE provided the structural design for the seismic reinforcement and renovation of two unreinforced masonry buildings built circa 1900 – the former campus bookstore and Sticky Wilson’s, a candy store. A fire-damaged addition built in 1984 was torn down and replaced with a new two-story structure and two courtyards. The new building has a sloped roof, stucco exterior, exterior stair, and a trellis on the east side of the building. The structure is wood-framed with manufactured wood roof trusses, wood floor joists, and wood shear walls.
