10 Barrel Brewing | San DiegoAug 22 2017 · 0 comments · Commercial, NISHKIAN DEAN ·0
Nishkian Dean is proud to have served as the structural engineer on the recently opened 10 Barrel Brewing brewpub in the Maker’s Quarter district in San Diego’s East Village. The restaurant and social gathering place, situated in a converted warehouse, offers guests a chance to view many different aspects of the brewing process. Each level of the building incorporates different brewing equipment that is visible to guests, with a grain silo on the roof, brew tanks on the interior mezzanine, and fermenters on the ground floor, adding points of visual interest.
At roughly 10,000 square feet and with three separate levels, the brewpub and restaurant has ample space for dining and events. The main level incorporates a dining room and bar connected to an outdoor patio through roll-up industrial doors. The exterior mezzanine deck and rooftop patio bar provide additional space for patrons to the enjoy the sights of the surrounding bustling residential area.
The space, converted from an existing warehouse, required substantial seismic upgrades due to the change in occupancy and extensive improvements made to the building façade. New lateral-force-resisting elements include concrete masonry shear walls at portions of the building perimeter, and steel-braced frames to support the interior steel mezzanine that houses the brew equipment. The existing roof framing required strengthening to support the increased loading from the rooftop patio.
Due to poor soil conditions on the site, a network of grade beams at the ground level was used to support the new brew mezzanine and rooftop deck. These grade beams are supported by deep cast-in-drilled-hole concrete piles to minimize settlement.
It was a pleasure to have teamed with Scott|Edwards Architecture and general contractor Bergman KPRS on this exciting new project.
