Mills College Concert Hall, Oakland

Originally designed by Walter Ratcliff, Jr. and built in 1928, James R. Griffin, Inc. was entrusted to perform major seismic reconstruction work, including new foundations and concrete sheer walls. In the concert hall the old floor framing and walls were demolished and new, reconfigured floors and seating installed.


HISTORIC CONCERT HALL

New undulating walls were constructed to improve acoustics and enhance the beauty of the room. A new roof with seismic connections and acoustic improvements was installed, along with new heating and electric systems, new office and bathroom wing and a new elevator. All concrete and framing operations were conducted by the crews of James R, Griffin, Inc. The project was completed on time and under budget. Cost: $8,000,000. Read More
