200 Park Avenue

Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, 200 Park Avenue is a tech-oriented, 19-story office building located above four levels of underground parking. Langan conducted a geotechnical investigation, which included drilling borings and advancing cone penetration tests, performing shear wave velocity measurements to estimate ground motion during an earthquake, and developing site-specific response spectra for the tower design. We also performed a three-dimensional soil structure interaction evaluation to capture embedment and kinematic effects on the ground motions.
