City of Novato Buildings

Novato, California

Structural and Architectural Investigation Services

W | A Associates performed a Preliminary Building Evaluation Report for ten structures in Novato’s civic center area. The buildings were investigated for architectural, structural, life safety, electrical, mechanical and environmental deficiencies. The summary report included photographs documenting problem areas.

W | A Associates also performed a renovation study for the Community House, a theater building with proscenium stage located at one corner of the civic center. Existing uses for the building were reviewed, a detailed code analysis completed, and detailed reviews by structural, electrical and mechanical engineers were performed. The report centers around a conceptual cost estimate for the total renovation of the building.

In addition, W | A Associates provided consultant services to develop a cost estimate for rehabilitation of four city owned buildings; and was contracted to perform foundation testing of two City owned buildings, 900 and 917 Sherman Avenue.
