Castlemont High School



Undergoing several reconstructions over the years, we assisted Castlemont High School with a structural and seismic evaluation for campus buildings seismic retrofit and modernization design construction administration.

Project Details:

Location: Oakland, CA

Timeline: The original castle-like building opened in 1929, and since has undergone many reconstruction phases in order to make the school earthquake-safe. In the early 1990’s, the Oakland Unified School District had plans to modernize the campus and brought us on as part of the team in 1995.

Project Needs: The project architect needed us to evaluate the seismic safety of the campus buildings and later develop plans for the campus buildings modernization.

Landtech’s Solution: We were able to identify that several buildings, most of which are old reinforced concrete buildings, were in need of seismic upgrades and structural improvements. Landtech then used our structural engineering experience to conduct the modernization and seismic retrofit project of several buildings on campus.
