Press box lifted in place at Cal Stadium
BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- The renovation of Cal's old home, Memorial Stadium, took a huge step forward Tuesday.
One of the largest cranes in the country began hoisting sections of the 300-foot long press box onto four massive support towers.
When complete, the press box will sway back and forth if a quake actually hits.
"About a foot, which is similar to what you would feel in a high rise in a windstorm. So it's not anything really out of character with what we would do in a building, in a taller building anyway," said Rene Vignos, from Forell/Elsesser Engineers.
