Merritt & Harris’ structural engineering team relies on its decades of professional experience to assess risk to properties and structures from seismic events.
For existing buildings, our structural engineers will analyze and assess the current conditions for building stability and performance, preparing detailed observations and assessing the particular code under which the design was based. Our team determines the Probable Maximum Loss (PML) for the project, while also detailing the particular site hazards and existing deficiencies that could result in significant losses which require remediation.
For new construction, our structural engineers reviews and analyzes structural design documents and specifications in order to assess potential seismic hazards and risks, as well as to characterize building damageability in the event of an earthquake. A PML is then determined based on the overall structural integrity and the anticipated earthquake performance of the design.
