San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club

Coffman provided structural engineering services for the adaptive reuse of a 1970s vintage industrial building to serve as the new home of the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club. The change in occupancy from warehouse to curling club mandated the seismic retrofit of the building to accommodate the higher occupant level.

The building has tilt-up concrete walls and a panelized wood-framed roof. The retrofit scope of work included improved roof-to-wall anchorage and cross-diaphragm continuity ties. Coffman’s scope also included the design of the tenant improvements needed to create curling sheets, restrooms, and an audience viewing area. The structural revisions needed to accommodate the newly installed refrigeration system were addressed as well. The new facility is now open and has enabled the club to finally have its own “home ice” after renting at other facilities over the years.
