Hobson Building

Historic Commercial Building in Astoria, Oregon

Completed structural restoration for 1923 building in downtown Astoria. Worked with City Community Development, City Engineering staff, and Peterson Structural Engineers to replicate sidewalk structure and hatches based on model utilized at the Bank of the Pacific in downtown Astoria. Installed structural c channels by sistering them to failing concrete beams that were supporting the sidewalk. Removed two original steel hatches that were deteriorating and leaking; installed one new hatch and infilled the other.
