Port of Los Angeles Warehouse No. 1, Renovation Feasibility Study
Warehouse No. 1 is a six-story plus basement, 500,000 SF reinforced concrete structure. The primary goal of the renovation is to create a new, usable space with an occupancy and functionality other than the current heavy storage use. A scheme was developed which would remove large floor areas to increase floor to floor heights and provide internal atriums while preserving prominent historic features.
This will allow natural light into the building, converting a compact storage structure into a comfortable office or museum environment. Special consideration was made to the foundations which consisted of driven piles, a solution to pressure grout the loosely compacted man-made fill under the structure was proposed. A conceptual cost estimate and proposed structural modifications and foundation improvements were provided to the client.
