AMC Theaters at Vallco Fashion Park

AMC Theaters at Vallco Fashion Park | Cupertino, California

DPR Construction built the 16-theater movie megaplex with seating capacity for 3,500 people above an existing occupied shopping center, including mall upgrades, a 120,000-sq.-ft. addition and a new center atrium and lobby renovation. The theater's location in the middle of an occupied shopping mall created many logistical challenges on this project.

Solving Challenges

The project required extending over 100 structural columns four feet vertically into the existing roof. The column footings on the main and second floors had to be expanded and reinforced to support the new platform, requiring digging into walls to expose the columns which often had to be done in spaces occupied by mall tenants.
