This project mainly involves the seismic retrofit of the building, the addition of floor area and the lowering of a section of the roof.
So that the building meets the current standards, we conducted the seismic retrofit using braces equipped with dynamic brakes developed by " Pall Dynamics ". This device can absorbs and dissipate large amounts of energy while minimizing the stresses in the existing building.
The new bracing for the seismic rehabilitation of the building was coordinated with the architect to minimize their impact on the interior layout of the rooms.
New floor areas were also added to link the wings of the building to each other. The construction of a new lobby was also completed.
