Covering two full blocks in Sacramento, this $250 million expansion project contains two levels of below-grade parking supporting separate four-story and six-story buildings. Other features include. Working with one of the world's most influential architectural firms, Gwathmey, Siegel & Associates Architects out of New York, CYS provided structural engineering services for the new 125,000 SF expansion of the first art museum established in the Western United States.

The Health Systems Education Building consists of two structurally separate, plan irregular, four-story buildings totaling approximately 120,000 SF. The buildings are steel framed with. CYS was the structural engineer-of-record for this $180 million Design/Build project with Skanska Construction Company, involving a new central plant and thermal energy storage (TES) tank servicing all of the heating and cooling needs for 23 state office buildings.

CYS provided the retrofit design for these two nearly identical 17-story, 290,000 SF each, steel moment frame and concrete shear wall buildings, originally built in 1967 as part of a full remodel.
Highlights

read more › Our story actually begins in 1963 when Eugene Cole and Jimmie Yee paired up to open one of the few structural engineering offices in Sacramento, Cole and Yee Structural Engineers. Ken Luttrell was the very first employee of the firm. When Carl Schubert became a partner, the name of the firm changed to Cole, Yee, Schubert & Associates. Early accomplishments of the firm include the first building renovation in Old Sacramento, Sutter General Hospital, Capitol Bank of Commerce, the original NBA Arco Arena, Sacramento Convention Center, and UCDMC Cancer Center.

read more › Our office just completed a review with OSHPD, contracted to CYS, on an $84 million, 254,000 SF new hospital tower. We found the review to be very thorough, yet reasonable, based on their experience as "real world" structural engineers - - and consistent for the duration of the review. They were polite and helpful with any questions we had. We had a stronger drawing set at the end of their comment period, for all of our efforts. The engineering team at CYS clearly understands the requirements before them with regard to healthcare construction and the regulations that dictate safe and code compliant practices.

David Calia, S.E. - Vice President Business Development and Marketing: In addition to his role as Senior Project Manager at CYS, David will provide a lead role in business development and marketing for the firm. Approaching our 50 years in business, CYS moves to a new location on the top floor of the Natomas Corporate Center at 2495 Natomas Park Drive, Suite 650.

read more › The engineers at CYS Structural Engineers are encouraged to contribute their time and knowledge to both professional and community services. The following are examples of how some of our engineers donate their time and professional services to the community. Four CYS Principals have been recognized by the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) with the title of Fellow, an honor bestowed by their peers in recognition of their outstanding service and accomplishments in the field of structural engineering.

In addition to our design experience for educational facilities, we have held master agreements with the Division of the State Architect (DSA) for several decades, performing plan checks on K-12 and higher education facilities. We are very familiar with the codes and regulations that govern school construction and have been very successful in obtaining timely approvals from DSA by communicating with agency engineers regarding structural issues as the project develops, obtaining written approvals prior to the final submittal.

The District also desired a design that was adaptable to many school sites in the District. Thus, CYS provided structural engineering services for a new 9,920 SF classroom wing with a vertical load bearing system consisting of hot-rolled steel frames regularly spaced at 10 ft. on center so as to change the size of the building upon the District's discretion for each reuse of the design. The building's lateral system was also designed with modularity in mind by employing prefabricated steel shear wall elements supplied by Hardy Frames, Inc.

read more › CYS assisted the Marysville Joint Unified School District with the structural evaluation of two existing unreinforced brick masonry buildings for an order-of-magnitude study to determine the feasibility of returning the structures to school occupancy. The buildings are approximately 8,790 SF and 22,690 SF respectively and were designed and constructed in the late 1920's prior to the passing of the Field Act. The structural recommendations considered using shotcrete to strengthen the URM walls and provide a new complete lateral force-resisting system for each building.

read more › CYS has completed a significant number of healthcare projects, historically comprising a large percentage of our work. Having provided structural engineering design services for numerous hospital and healthcare facilities in California that have gone through OSHPD (and previously DSA) since our inception, we are accustomed to the OSHPD peer review/plan check process. We began providing structural plan-checking services for OSHPD more than two decades ago. OSHPD has pre-approved many of our anchorage designs, allowing the suppliers to install their equipment without going through "project-specific" OSHPD review.

read more › The South Wing building consists of a three-story steel-framed structure over a partial basement that totals approximately 88,000 SF delivered as design-build. The lateral force resisting system consists of Special Moment Resisting Frames that are supported by concrete grade beams and concrete basement walls. The project was one of the first to be permitted through the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development's Phased Design and Review process. The project also includes the design of two enclosed bridges, 30 and 80 FT spans, that connect the South Wing with the existing Hospital at the second and third floors.

read more › CYS has had an ongoing relationship with Marshall Hospital since 1988 when we performed structural engineering services for a major remodeling of the existing 14,200 sq. In 1996, CYS undertook an investigation of the hospital to assess the existing lateral strength of the hospital per Senate Bill 1953. The initial effort of this investigation was the evaluation of the 1958 building to assist the hospital in making long-range planning decisions, while waiting for the release of the report format for SB1953 reports by OSHPD.

read more › This project involved a single-story, 12,000 SF Outpatient Surgery Center including four operating rooms, 12 pre- and post-operative beds and a waiting area. The project provides additional inpatient surgical capacity by relocating some of the outpatient procedures and cases currently conducted in the main operating theatre, the University and Satellite Surgery Centers, to a free-standing outpatient surgical building.
