PROJECTS >>SEISMIC RETROFIT

 

 

The structure at 901 South Broadway was rezoned from a business structure to a residential structure. To do this, its seismic tolerances had to be completely assessed and upgraded to the current standards for the conversion to a residential structure.

This was done through field analysis on the un-reinforced masonry infills to evaluate current material properties of these shear resisting elements. Then, through non-linear analysis of the infills using FEM-II software, proper equivalent bracings members where determined to use in analysis of the structure using ETABS CAD software. The building was then strengthened by using new shear walls as determined by the modeling software
