Notes
Survey number HAER CA-174-N
Building/structure dates: 1951 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1953 subsequent work
Significance: A simple, utilitarian design, Building 19 is, like the Fire Station, a product of the HAC Plant Engineering Department. Roughly rectangular in plan, the one story structure is of steel frame construction clad with vertical corrugated metal panels. The ridges of its symmetrical, low-pitched, double gabled roof run east-west, and the structure's roofline mimics that of the huge Cargo Building (Building 15) immediately to the north. Fabricated steel I-section arches placed 20 ft on center frame the two bays which share common central supports. The building's overall dimensions are 94 x 260 ft, and it rests on a raised reinforced concrete foundation. The roof is also clad with corrugated metal panels, and rows of ventilators occur along the ridgelines.
