Cafe Gliss - Santa Barbara Anacota Plaza Building Seismic Evaluation

Services Provided:

  • Project Overview/span>
  • Testimonials

Simple upgrades sometimes require complex solutions. Coffman's structural linear and nonlinear analyses established the true strength and stiffness of the cafe's structure. These analyses allowed the Owner to show the City of Santa Barbara his facility met Life-Safety seismic performance criteria and receive approval for a change of use for more occupants so it could also be a nightclub. 

Dear Coffman Engineers,

I want to thank all of you who worked on Café Gliss and contributed to its success. Once our TIs are completed and we have promotional photographs in hand, I will be honored if you choose to post information about Café Gliss on your web site. And of course, please don't hesitate to use me as a reference as a very happy client.

-Gary Bollinger, President, Café Gliss, Inc.
