Granada Hills Medical Building

EAS provided a structural evaluation report of the Granada Hills Medical Building for adaptive reuse. The building was constructed in 1978. It is three-stories, 38.5 feet in height excluding the parapet and 94.67 feet by 92 feet in plan dimension. There are two elevators and two stair towers that access each level.

The criterion used for evaluation of existing buildings provides a minimum level of seismic performance. A three dimensional finite element model of the building was prepared utilizing the ETABS computer software.  The Medical Office Building did comply with the ASCE 31 criteria as specified by Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings for life safety performance.
