DCI PROJECT WINS CALIFORNIA PRESERVATION AWARD

Share

JANUARY 7, 2020 -- The Livermore Railroad Depot Rehabilitation and Relocation project has been awarded to receive the 2019 Governor’s Historic Preservation Award.

Originally constructed in 1892, the building served as the transit ticketing office and waiting area at the Livermore Transit Center before it was shuttered in the early 1960s. The City purchased the structure in 2007 and in July 2017, DCI Engineers was part of a team that included architect Page & Turnbull which helped restore the depot for a half-mile move to its new location.

DCI Engineers Winery

Crafting a fine wine takes careful attention to detail – a little errant bacteria or slight fluctuation in temperature can mean the difference between the finest vintage and undrinkable swill.
