  • Victor Point Seismic Upgrades: Project Description

    • Establish adequate in-plane and out-of-plane connection between top of wall and diaphragm
    • Increase the allowable shear capacity of the roof diaphragm to acceptable levels in portions of the building built prior to 1989.

    • Concrete shear walls will be used to provide lateral support
    • Wall posts will be installed to provide secondary gravity support of the roof system in the event the wall collapse. These posts will be attached to the walls to provide support for out-of-plane buckling forces.
    • Proper attachment and bracing for all non-structural components and equipment will be provided.
    • Proper attachment and bracing for all non-structural components and equipment will be provided.
