Last minute request came in on Friday afternoon from Langan (http://www.langan.com), a structural and civil engineering firm: "We need to photograph a property located at 150 Otis St. San Francisco called Veterans Common. We provided environmental and geotechnical engineering services when the property was being transformed into residential units for disabled Veterans. Veterans housing isn't too common so the building (originally built in 1916) is special in that sense. Even though our services are ground and below, we like to showcase the end result. We were responsible for making sure the property can resist earthquake damage and create a foundation that can hold nine stories (as well as adhere to environmental regulations) so showing the grandness of the structure is what we are looking for".
A tall order! No pun intended:-)
