UC Berkeley is building the new Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive in the center of downtown Berkeley. CJA was awarded the Demolition/Shoring/Excavation/ Dewatering Trade Package by Plant Construction and started immediately to meet the aggressive schedule. Our shoring scope included supporting a historic 3 story concrete building in place, then removing the foundations and excavating underneath. The temporary steel support structure required over 400,000 lbs of steel with shop drawings, field fabrication, and building jacking all performed by CJA forces. CJA also installed 7,600 SF of soil nail walls, 8,400 SF of soldier pile & tieback walls, underpinning pits surrounding and underneath the existing structure.
