Oakland City Hall: Masonry Restoration and Seismic Upgrade

Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA

With the threat of earthquakes on the rise in California, Kaptive C&P of Beverly Hills, CA, stepped in to fit the Oakland City Hall with protection against these natural disasters. To accomplish this complete seismic retrofit, they installed a milestone base-isolation system and placed an iron frame within the original structure. Kaptive C&P then worked to achieve a complete restoration of the interior and exterior marble. Blending salvaged and original stone, they then honed the surfaces for a clean, new look.
