Stone Brewing – Borreo Building

Category: Work
Napa, CA

The historic Borreo Building was built in 1877 and is the second oldest commercial building in Napa. The landmark building, made of stone quarried from the Soda Canyon area, represents Napa’s mercantile history.

ZFA performed a post-earthquake evaluation of the building to assess the damage and provided the earthquake repairs & targeted strengthening of the building, which suffered moderate damage from the August 2014 South Napa Earthquake.

ZFA recently finished the structural engineering services for the tenant improvements to the two-story building which is now home to Stone Brewery, the 10th largest craft brewer in the United States.

Major improvements include:

    • New aluminum and glass overhead doors will open the western wall  allowing patrons to view the Napa River and Veteran’s Park in Downtown Napa
    • Strengthened floor framing to support a restaurant occupancy load requirements
    • A sunken roof platform to support the brewing & kitchen mechanical needs
    • Interior equipment pads & slab to support brewery operations
