Historic bridge restoration wins California preservation award

The Picture Bridge at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena has won a 2021 Preservation Design Award in the Preservation or Restoration category from the California Preservation Foundation. The award recognizes outstanding work and dedication to historic preservation. 

IMEG provided structural engineering and design for the multi-million-dollar restoration and rehabilitation, meeting current seismic codes and saving as much of the original bridge as possible. The design included a new steel reinforcement system covered with wood to retain the original appearance of the historic bridge.  

The team will be presented with an award at a ceremony in October. Read about IMEG’s involvement in the project here.
