Oakland Temple Remodel

This project involved a major interior face lift, as well as numerous improvements to the site surrounding the temple. The site improvements included the repair and restoration of all of the enormous elevated planting areas. This required the removal of all the materials in the planters, restoring the planters to a waterproof condition, and replanting all of the palm trees. During the remodel the Loma Prieta earthquake struck the greater San Francisco area; the temple survived this disaster unscathed.
