Expansion Joint Covers
California Memorial Stadium
Since 1923, the Golden Bears have played football on the Hayward Fault, which runs from goal post to goal post in UC Berkeley Memorial Stadium. The CS Expansion Joint Cover team worked closely with HNTB to create a unique system of stair risers and treads to ensure that fans, students and athletes would be safe in the event of a seismic event.
The primary goals were to reduce seismic risk and ensure life safety in the event of a major seismic occurrence, so CS not only had to design an exclusive system but also prove that these covers could handle the required movements.See full case study
