UC Berkeley, Tolman Hall Seismic Replacement
CEL provided special inspections and materials testing services on the new Tolman Hall Seismic Replacement Project, Berkeley Way.
The Berkeley Way project is a 340,000-square-foot building, with the first five floors built-out to house UC Berkeley’s Schools of Psychology and Public Health. The top three floors are shell space that will be leased out by the university.
CEL’s scope included a full-time resident inspector as well as additional field and shop inspectors. Inspections included shop and field welding inspection, pre-cast inspection, concrete placement and sampling, concrete testing, and micropile grout placement inspection and testing.
