Press Release - March 19, 2012

City of Atascadero Administrative Services Department

On March 9, 2012, a major milestone in the reconstruction of Atascadero’s Historic City Hall was completed, the stabilization of the building’s foundation. This step is a major one towards the project’s total rehabilitation. The complex and sensitive work was completed by Wysong Construction of Atascadero and took a total of eight months.

With this work completed, the new foundation underneath the original structure is now done and the building is safely resting on its new foundation. The stabilization work included the installation of 248 steel and concrete piles, each averaging 56’ deep, with a total drill length of over 16,000 feet. There were 110 concrete pile caps installed underneath the existing spread footings and on top of the support piles. The pile caps included 600 yards of concrete and approximately 80 tons of reinforcing steel.

The remaining tasks for structural mitigation and repair work include the installation of shotcrete walls for lateral support, installation of additional structural steel and structural framing in the upper rotunda and fiber reinforced polymer fabric for lateral support, also in the upper rotunda. The structural work is on schedule to be completed by the end of April 2012 according to Dan Huff, Project Manager from Bernard’s, the construction management firm hired to manage the project for the City.

Completion of the Historic City Hall project in the City’s centennial year remains one of the City Council’s top priorities. Said Mayor Pro Tem Tom O’Malley, the City is "literally building the foundation for our Centennial Celebration and paving the way to a successful future for our City."
