Seismic Monitoring and Instrumentation

Upgrades are designed to improve seismic performance to levels consistent with client goals related to safety and business continuity considering budget constraints, construction phasing, and ongoing building operations, and are based on current national consensus standards.  A specialty is the upgrade of facilities with critical operations.  In such cases, we bring value to owners and decisions makers through our ability to communicate risk and risk mitigation options.
