Seismic Risk Evaluation & Mitigation

Where buildings are in areas where earthquakes are a consideration, our design engineers expertly design new structures to seismically resist the loads associated with these events. While new buildings address these loads in design, many existing buildings in these areas were not originally designed to account for these forces. In these cases, our seismic engineers can perform detailed assessments of the structure and non-structural components of the building to identify areas of risk, building demand-capacity ratios, and provide an owner insight as to a building’s seismic concerns. Done in multiple phases, these assessments provide an owner with the necessary insight to be able understand their building’s vulnerability and make informed decisions on how mitigation can be performed. When upgrades are desired, CJE’s (now BPA) engineering group works to find innovative and cost-effective solutions to upgrade the building without compromising building operations and occupancy.

Occupational & Functional Component (OFC) Seismic Engineering

In both new and renovation construction projects in seismic zones, new OFCs are required to be seismically restrained such that they do not become damaged in moderate earthquakes. CJE’s (now BPA) New Construction and Special Projects groups specialize in providing these designs for both consulting teams and our sub-trade partners. Whether it is ceiling restraints, mechanical system bracing, piping supports, or new AHU framing, our team can provide safe and efficient structural solutions.
