MAP: Seismically hazardous buildings at UC Berkeley

The UC system began identifying its seismically unsafe buildings in the late 1970s. Although it has fixed many of the buildings, the system still has 102 buildings rated as "poor" and 10 rated as "very poor."

Click on a marker in the map or building name in the adjacent sidebar to view more information about that building. Click the "Zoom To" link in the marker to see an aerial view of the building and the campus.

 

Source: California Watch created a database of previously uncompiled records, including data from UC and CSU systems, individual campuses, public records and interviews with campus officials.

 

Key to UC rating system

G

Good. During a major earthquake this structure is anticipated to result in some structural and/or nonstructural damage and/or falling hazards that would not significantly jeopardize life. These buildings are not considered priorities for seismic funding. According to UC policy, they represent an acceptable level of earthquake safety.

F

Fair. During a major earthquake this structure is anticipated to result in structural and nonstructural damage and/or falling hazards that would represent low life hazards. These buildings are considered a low priority for expenditures to improve their seismic resistance and/or to reduce falling hazards so that the building could be reclassified "Good."

P

Poor. During a major earthquake this structure would experience significant structural and nonstructural damage and possibly falling hazards that would represent appreciable life hazards. These buildings are supposed to get high priority for funding for retrofits. Alternately, officials should consider reducing their occupancy.

VP

Very Poor. During a major earthquake, this structure would experience extensive structural and nonstructural damage, potential structural collapse, and possibly falling hazards that would represent high life hazards. These buildings are supposed to get the highest priority for funding for retrofits. Alternately, officials should consider reducing their occupancy.

I attended class regularly in 4 seismically unsafe buildings while attending Berkeley for 3 years! I shudder to think what will happen if a quake on the Hayward fault occurs during a Cal football game. Does the university have an evacuation plan for the 70,000 people Memorial Stadium can hold?

Something definitely has to be done about that! - it's very unsafe and not sound. This is certainly a shock and not something expected of a large institution such as UC Berkeley. I Agree with Sarah - they better have a plan in place and fix up the mess!

112 buildings sounds like quite a few and hopefully will be looked into soon as it has been quite some time since a major quake in CA.
