Seismic Evaluation, Repair, and Retrofit
Major earthquakes, especially in densely populated urban areas, can cause catastrophic damage to buildings and lead to human injuries and fatalities. Our seismic evaluation, repair, and retrofit services help alleviate concerns about building stability. Depending upon the level of analytical work required, our seismic evaluation reports describe anticipated structural performance, identify specific areas of weakness, and/or provide recommendations for strengthening. We can also use the evaluation report as a foundation for construction documents that define retrofitting and upgrades to meet current code or any other desired performance standard. After a major seismic event, we respond quickly to inspect the site, summarize damage, and prepare documentation for repair and retrofitting that restores your building to pre-earthquake condition and provides improved performance in the future.
