CLIENT: Kyo-Ya Management Company, Ltd.
LOCATION: San Francisco, California
ASSET TYPES: Parking structures
This almost 100-year-old structure required a seismic evaluation, schematic design and full retrofit, including an accessible bathroom, locker room and storage area, plus a new basement-parking ventilation system and design for an accessible path of travel.
Following San Francisco Building and Planning Department guidelines, due to the historic nature of the hotel, Marx|Okubo completed the retrofit design within a very short construction schedule while creating considerable cost and time savings over hiring separate design companies in a conventional design-bid-build project system.
