Chief Seattle Club and Monterey Hotel Lofts Seattle, WA
Lund Opsahl provided structural engineering services for the renovation, seismic strengthening, and a one-floor addition to a historic Pioneer Square brick and wood frame building, built in the 1890s. The main floor is home to the Chief Seattle Club, which includes a circular gathering room, kitchen, and social services space. Eleven loft-style rental units occupy the upper floors.
Liquefiable soil conditions required special foundation solutions to support braced frames for the seismic retrofit.
