Palomar College South Education Center
This renovation project consists of an existing 121,000 SF, four-story, core, and shell Class A office building and an existing four-story parking structure. Both buildings had to undergo major structural upgrades to meet current DSA code compliance.
CTE provided all inspection services, which included all shop welding, major structural field welding of a retrofitted building, and a comprehensive modification of the parking structure using extensive fiber composite wrapping of reinforced concrete and additional reinforcement added in several areas, including the structural steel beams and rooftop support system. CTE also provides all geotechnical engineering and material testing and special inspection services to the additional ground-mounted solar power systems added to the project site.
