Hotel Del Coronado, Michael Hardisty, Rob Lowe, Phil Stukin, & Alisha Young
This award is to commend the seizmic retrofitting of the Hotel del Coronado, which began with refurbishing the foundation of the Victorian Building with over 4,000 yards of concrete. The structure was then reinforced with over 200 tons of steel and thousands of board feet of timber. Painstaking preservation of the historic smokestack took three months to complete and cost over $250,000. One of the most challenging tasks was the preservation of the 13,500 square-foot Crown Room. A new steel structure around and over the legendary room was created to anchor the 33-foot high rib-vaulted pine ceiling to a refurbished foundation.
