Muttville is a non-profit organization that rescues senior dogs that are at risk, and provides them a forever home either at Muttville or through adoption. Muttville is expanding into a new campus in Potrero Hill, which requires the renovation and seismic retrofit of three existing buildings. RJSD is working as a subconsultant to Estructure, and is responsible for two of the buildings on site, Centers B and C.
Buildings B and C are both light steel framed structures, and the renovations include adding or expanding mezzanines in both buildings. This triggers a full seismic upgrade of both buildings, which include new braced frames and diaphragm strengthening to the existing shell, and new sheet steel shear walls below the mezzanines.
