Los Angeles-area, CA, October 26, 2016 -- Structural Focus team members accepted the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) Excellence in Structural Engineering Merit Award in the Historic Preservation category during the SEAOC 2016 Annual Convention in Maui, Hawaii. Structural Focus President, David Cocke, S.E. accompanied by Project Engineer, Brendan Ramos, S.E., and Design Engineer, Maria Mohammed, P.E. represented the firm. Brendan Ramos was also awarded the 2016 Nabih Youssef Young Engineers Award and Maria Mohammed received SEAOC’s Young Member Award.

Caruso Affiliated partnered with the tenant, CBRE Group Inc.; architect, Gensler; preservation consultant, Page & Turnbull; contractor, W.E. O’Neil; and structural engineer, Structural Focus, to successfully transform the historic building into a state-of-the-art creative office space within the parameters of a significant landmark.

The Masonic Temple in Glendale, California, once stood as the tallest building on Brand Boulevard and has housed six different Masonic organizations since its opening in 1929. The building is listed in the Glendale Register of Historic Resources. The Masonic Temple’s historic renovation was dictated by a fast-paced schedule that posed a challenge on a complex structural project. The 16 million dollar renovation was completed in approximately seven months from beginning of design to occupancy.

STRUCTURE Magazine’s March issue featured an insightful article by Structural Focus Project Engineer, Brendan Ramos, S.E. and President David Cocke, S.E., F.SEI, F.ASCE. The Modern Temple: Making a Historic Monument Shine explains the transformation of the ‪historic‬ Masonic Temple in ‪Glendale‬ into a state-of-the-art office building.

Whether the projects involve historic restoration or detailed laboratories, acoustically-sensitive post-production facilities or performance spaces, educational structures or corporate headquarters, Structural Focus embraces the collaborative process of design through an ongoing, open, creative and clear dialogue between the team and owner.
