INFO

PROJECT INFORMATION

CLIENT: San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin
LOCATION: San Jose, California

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin has been a religious and cultural center for Buddhists in Santa Clara Valley since the 1930s. In Spring 2013 the Church engaged CAW to study the Annex/Gymnasium building to determine needed seismic, life safety, accessibility, and building systems upgrades, and then propose design solutions that also included aesthetic and functional improvements to the building and surrounding site. CAW and a team of consultants have designed a new lobby and elevator, a seismic upgrade of the building roof and walls, all new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, a fully renovated commercial kitchen, accessible parking and site pathways, wheelchair lift for their stage, as well as aesthetic and functional improvements throughout the building. Cost estimation and constructability analysis from contractor Vance Brown have accompanied every step in the process.
