Seismic Rehabilitation and Retrofitting Design
Many commercial and residential buildings constructed are not considered capable of resisting the forces exerted by an earthquake due to the low quality of construction, change in residency or new code requirements.
Living in earthquake territory, it is widely understood that certain types of older buildings are inherently dangerous as they are susceptible to structural damage, or even collapse, in the event of an earthquake. To protect a building’s value as an investment, including the tenants and their operations, maintain the building’s marketability and decrease liability, it is important to assess your building’s earthquake risk and perform a seismic rehabilitation when recommended.
Design for seismic rehabilitation, retrofitting and structural strengthening are among the main services of IDSA group.
