Chevron Auditorium

San Ramon, CA

KPW partnered with Gensler Architects on the renovation of the main Chevron Headquarters Executive Auditorium to modernize the existing 16,000sf facility. An additional 1,600sf was included to the existing building to house the new rear-projection equipment. Extensive modifications to the current long-span roof structure, as well as column relocations, required synchronized shoring towers to redistribute loads. Load cell and shoring towers were needed for new loads to verify reactions at shoring towers. Due to the extensive structural modifications, a complete seismic upgrade was required for the existing conference facility.
