Improved Earthquake Performance and Resilience for New Buildings
Tuesday, January 12
Studies show that a code-level earthquake has the potential to cause a multi-billion dollar impact to B.C.
How do we build better performing buildings? How can we minimize the financial burden, community disruption and recovery time after an earthquake? We
all want durable buildings that remain habitable and functional after a seismic event.
Join us for this webinar to explore options for improving seismic resilience. Learn from a globally recognized seismic expert who incorporates innovative and cost-effective methods into designs for new construction projects. This session will discuss:
Structural design considerations
Possible revisions in Part 4 of the National Building Code
Options for building resilience
Assessment of seismic performance
Considerations for seismic instrumentation
Post-event habitability and building structure
