Novato Fire Department


Novato, California

W|A Associates, Structural Engineering Services

This structure is the new home for the administration offices of the Novato Fire Protection District. This project included the evaluation of an existing commercial building prior to purchase by the NFPD.

The evaluation uncovered unexpected and significant structural deficiencies in the structure and included recommendations for improvements. W|A Associates then provided structural engineering services required to analyze and design structural improvements to the facility. W|A Associates worked closely with the client and the architect to maximize the cost effectiveness of the structural solutions and incorporate the strengthening process into the architectural improvements.
