See the 1880s Victorian building at 2159 California Street as its original brick foundation is replaced with a concrete foundation. The new foundation will support new structural elements to improve the building’s ability to withstand an earthquake. On the day of the tour, the entire building will be shored up on steel beams, with wood forms and rebar marking where the new concrete foundation will be placed.

David Bonowitz, a San Francisco structural engineer, will discuss earthquake risk in Bay Area buildings, what the building code says (and doesn't say) about earthquake safety, and public policy issues in earthquake preparedness and structural engineering. He advised the city of San Francisco during the creation of its 2013 Mandatory Soft Story Retrofit Program, under which this construction project falls, and he leads the team of consultants advising the city’s Earthquake Safety Implementation Program.

Requirements
This tour will visit a construction site. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The tour will be conducted from the tradesman’s alley to the side of the building for safety reasons.

Parking

Japantown at 1610 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94115, has the closest parking garage. On street parking near 2159 California Street is available but is generally hard to find, especially when a person is in a hurry.
