Project Goal

Jacob Construction & Design, Inc. was tasked with renovating the existing warehouse space into a commercial kitchen and dining area at the Seaside Armory located in Seaside, California.


The goal of this project was to fully transform two existing suites totaling about 9,000 square feet into a commercial kitchen and cafeteria style dining area at the National Guard Armory Building in Seaside, CA. The existing space contained two munitions vaults and extensive permanent caging for securing storage within the two suites. This renovation project began with JCD self-performing the demolition of interior offices, partitions, caging, munition vault doors/barred windows, pillars, and existing electrical. With the Suites cleared out, JCD personnel proceeded to x-ray and trench cut the concrete flooring and pothole around existing buried utilities to accommodate incoming plumbing as per specs and drawings. Beyond demolition required strategic coordination of 18 subcontractors and sub-tiers that specialized in trades including but not limited to asbestos abatement, metal stud framing, drywall, extensive HVAC, plumbing, heavy electrical, suspended grid/ceiling, fire alarm/sprinkler system installation, coiling doors, cabinetry/countertops, coring & structural roof/reinforced wall penetrations, concrete patching, hot-tap, asphalt patching, application of epoxy flooring, painting, roofing, engineering, seismic, and installation of customized hood and Ansul system. During construction, the remaining occupied suites within the Armory remained open and required regular detailed coordination with the California Military Department and Armory staff to ensure construction did not impact tenant operations and active intruder & seismic alarm. To insure sufficient water for the new commercial kitchen and fire sprinklers, a new 4” line connection was made to the city’s buried water main across the street. This required added coordination for special permitting, plan review, and compliance with added construction requirements set by the Marina Coast Water District. This renovation project also involved continuous coordination with the California State Fire Marshal office in Sacramento to ensure fire safety code compliance of fire alarm system, fire sprinklers, and new installation of hood/Ansul system.
