Design Decision, Methods, and Procedures: Oakland City Hall Repair and Upgrades

by Franz Steiner and Eric Elsesser (edited by Dorit Fromm). This booklet explains and illustrates the award-winning renovation and structural upgrading of Oakland City Hall, which had been severely damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The decision to install a base isolation system as the most cost-effective solution was reached after eight alternative repair systems were compared and analyzed. The first high-rise building in California to be base isolated, it served as a model for designers and resulted in the acceptance of base isolation as a cost beneficial method of seismic risk reduction for historic buildings. It led the way for funding for other seismically isolated public buildings damaged by the Loma Prieta earthquake.
