SFSU J. Paul Leonard & Sutro Libraries - San Francisco, CA



- Design-Build seismic upgrade and expansion
- 6-story library facility on active college campus
- Value-engineered savings of $4 million
 

 

 

This design-build project involved the renovation and seismic upgrade of the existing 6-level library on the campus of San Francisco State University as well as the addition of a completely new 5-story structure to house a specialized book retrieval system. The project elements consisted of poured-in-place elevated slabs, shotcrete walls, use of fiber reinforced polymer for building renovation, grading and excavation, erosion control and sustainable design features. Our innovative use of fiber reinforced polymer on this project saved an estimated $4 million off the budget.
