Building 700 Parris Island

Project Description

Beaufort, SC (2016).
BES, Inc.

Evaluation of structure for conformance to seismic requirements as well as evaluation of concrete damage and spalling.

The project included two scope areas for structural. The first, to evaluate various concrete spalling damage and provide recommendations. The second aspect was to evaluate the building for seismic requirements. Used for this evaluation is the Uniļ¬ed Facilities Criteria (UFC) UFC 3-310-04 Seismic Design of Buildings, which also references ASCE 41-13. These documents provide a specific way to assess seismic resistance of existing buildings, quite different from evaluating seismic on new building construction.
