DH Glabe & Associates provides structural seismic engineering services for various structures including but not limited to buildings, bridges and residential homes. This includes evaluation and design of seismic retrofit plans to update structures to the most current codes. The emphasis on the structural seismic engineering profession grew significantly following the earthquakes that occurred in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989 and in Northridge, California in 1994. In a race against time, there has been an emphasis placed on building owners to ensure the safety of their building occupants in the event of a catastrophic earthquake.
Many jurisdictions have already mandated that a structural engineer evaluate existing buildings to ensure it meets seismic building codes. In cases where the structure does not meet or exceed the adopted performance and safety standards, these buildings must be retrofitted. In certain instances, standards such as the California Accidental Release Prevention Program (CalARP) have been specifically instituted to protect the public from hazardous materials in the event of an earthquake. DHG helps property owners to comply with the latest seismic building codes.
