Notes
Survey number HAER CA-174-K
Building/structure dates: 1943 initial construction
Significance: Significant as the building in which the wood for the Flying Boat was processed, Building 16 is a long rectangular structure, 65 feet wide by 441 feet long, contiguous with Building 15, with which it shares its north wall. The structure is composed of two parts: the "Boiler Room" is a tall, rectangular, reinforced concrete structure with a flat roof at the east end of the building. The western section, referred to as the "Duramold Room" on the original plans, has a low-pitched gabled roof that drops in height at the west end. It is framed with shaped laminated wood arches - smaller versions of those used in the Cargo Building. The Duramold Room is extended along the south side of the Boiler Room with a conventionally framed, shed roof section aligned with the south wall of the gabled portion. A narrow, steel framed, open shed added in 1966 spans the south elevation.
