Glendale Municipal Services
The City of Glendale’s municipal building rests on four concrete columns and has full cantilevers on all sides, making it a particularly challenging structure to be retrofitted with base isolators. Rather than bury the stainless steel, friction pendulum isolators, HLW’s design exposes the structural elements in lighted wells above grade. The solution allowed for an attractive new elevated plaza.
