Presidio of San Francisco: Building 102

  • Northern California

Located in the Presidio of San Francisco, a National Historic Landmark site, Building 102 is one in a series of original officers’ barracks along Infantry Row. This contributing three-story, unreinforced-masonry building faces the former Parade Ground and houses park staff offices on the upper floors with a visitor center on the first floor. The Presidio Trust hired ARG to provide design services for the seismic strengthening and upgrade of this historic brick building. ARG participated in a one-day charette to determine the preferred type and level of seismic strengthening. ARG’s recommendations resulted in a schematic design phase, which also included a building code analysis and updated floor plans and elevations, and a cost estimate.
