HOME ABOUT SYSTEM FABRICATORS PORTFOLIO TESTIMONIALS BRIEF HISTORY OF PUEBLO STRUCTURAL SYSTEM Pueblo genesis emerged from a 1996 meeting between Tom Graf, a geotechnical engineer and Jorge de Quesada with his own architectural practice; De Quesada Architects, Inc (www.dqarch.com). This meeting was generated by Tom’s desire to simplify the foundation design for projects to be built in very poor soils requiring very costly foundations. Tom was seeking ways to reduce building dead weight. Jorge produced a number of solutions based on light-weight construction using an structured composed primarily of shop fabricated welded steel frame and light gauge floor panels. The results of Jorge’s work were deemed to deserve patent protection. The first building using the Pueblo Structural System  was a four-story residential loft condominium at 1221 Harrison Street in San Francisco. Despite of being a first, the construction of this project was completed without a glitch. An 8-stories condominium building was fully designed and permitted but its construction has been delayed due to the current recession. Mike Giosso, formerly a CEO of a steel fabrication company, joined Tom and Jorge in 2008, contributing   the necessary business experience. This was followed by the creation of Pueblo Building Technologies, Inc. for the development and marketing of the Pueblo Structural Systems. In 2009, Olson Steel, a large steel fabricator based in San Leandro, was selected to be the Pueblo Licensed Fabricator for the West Coast Region. OLLM Consulting Engineers, a structural engineering company in Oakland, CA - has provided technical assistance through the development of The Pueblo Structural System.
