Abstract/Artist Statement

Buckenhams Stuttgart West is a 3,918 square foot auto mechanic shop in Downtown Stockton that has been providing restorative services to Stockton car enthusiasts for years. In 2018, a piece of machinery sparked a fire that spread throughout the building, charring the timber roof structure beyond repair and scorching the brick. As a result, the roof requires complete removal and replacement in the affected areas, while the brick walls remain intact and functional, although seismic bracing is needed. Due to the cost of demolition and the fiscal impacts on the owner’s business, the client has opted to retrofit and repair the building while keeping historical aesthetics intact.

The design includes key components from structural, geotechnical, and water resources disciplines. Our team provided a comprehensive solution to bring the unreinforced masonry structure back into code compliance in the following areas: new roof framing specifications to replace the damaged roof structure, the design of a subdiaphragm to stabilize the building under critical loading conditions, a foundation design and upgrades to the drainage onsite that will reduce environmental impacts. JAMT Engineers completed a construction cost estimate, construction drawings, and comprehensive calculation packages for structural, geotechnical, and water resources services provided. Our design process was based on the analysis and synthesis of empirical data obtained for the site combined with generally accepted engineering practices recognized by industry experts.

Our goal was to retain the historic aesthetics of the building and work within the confines of the existing footprint while addressing structural stability and environmental concerns. The improvements described here will restore the building to an operational state and allow the owner to successfully resume business.
