As a member of Board, Maryann also advises on statewide structural and seismic policy issues.
Recent peer review projects include:
• The CSU Sacramento Student Union Expansion, a 71,000-square-foot expansion/renovation of the University Union, which serves as the campus “living room” for 30,000 students. The project included seismic evaluation of the combined new addition and existing building.
• The CSU Sacramento New Science II Building, a new 94,000-square-foot state-of-the-art education building with cutting-edge teaching labs for the Biology and Chemistry departments. The design and construction combined fees are $6,252,608. Phase and project completion is expected in May 2019.
• The CSU Humboldt Library, a 3-story + basement 200,000-square-foot building evaluated and renovated for compliance with 2016 CBC seismic requirements for existing buildings. Peer review included both structural and nonstructural designs.
