VILLAGIO RETAIL CENTER
The Villagio Retail Center in Fresno is comprised of several individual buildings, of which we designed an infill, 20,000 sq. ft. masonry building with a panalized roof system.
Builder: Quiring General
NANTUCKET HOME FURNISHINGS
Architect TJ Glenn developed a program to convert a 13,000 sq. ft. dilapidated warehouse into an upscale home store in downtown Chico. The renovation called for a complete seismic upgrade and structural rehabilitation of the entire framing system to accommodate the opened ceilings, exposed framing elements, and open floor plan.
BLACK STALLION WINERY-WAREHOUSE CONVERSION
Architect James Jeffries, AIA developed a plan to convert a metal building barrel storage warehouse to an elegant addition and extension of the adjacent offices and tasting facilities. The modifications included the addition of solid stone walls, upgraded lateral system, and altered framing to accommodate a second level.
ST. CLAIRE AND BROWN ESTATE WINERY
The St. Claire Estate Winery included a conversion of an historic residential structure with stone and adobe walls into an upscale office and tasting room for an estate Winery in Napa. The renovation included a seismic retro-fit with steel frames, and altered framing to compensate for failing elements, and to accommodate the modified floor plan for altered use.
SANTA MARIA POLICE DEPARTMENT
The SM Police Department purchased an existing 240,000 sq. foot building to convert to a new headquarters. The change in use required the entire structure to be seismically upgraded to account for the nature of emergency services to be housed in the facility.
An original design had been approved and VerTech was hired to revise the entire system in order to re-design the proposed system to a more economic alternative. The new system reduce the construction budget by 40% and eliminated many of the potentially invasive procedures required under the previous design.
240 MAIN ST.
A downtown renovation project turned into an internal expansion when the owner asked to add a second floor to an existing historic building. VerTech provided an independently supported frame system to both strengthen the concrete building, and support the additional loading caused by the added second floor.
