Rutherford + Chekene is structural engineer for the renovation of Oakland Airport's Terminal 1. R+C performed a seismic evaluation of four buildings—M101 ticketing building, M102 security/concessions building, M103 boarding area/concourse building, and M104 central utility plant—and then followed that evaluation with the preparation of construction documents in order to mitigate the deficiencies identified. In the process, the project team worked closely with all stakeholders to develop retrofit solutions that allowed for continuous use of the terminal facility. The boarding area/concourse and central utility plant renovations are constructed, including the addition of a new mechanical building and electrical substation. Construction is underway on the renovation of the security/concessions building.
