Areas of Focus

Seismic Certification & Testing

Since the 1994 Northridge, California Earthquake knocked 11 area hospitals offline, a focus on nonstructural components and equipment performance under earthquakes has entered the International Building Code (IBC) and California Building Code (CBC). Agencies like HCAI (formerly OSHPD) developed Pre-approval programs like OSP and OPM, setting the stage for jurisdictions in moderate and high seismic regions to also enforce code standards with Pre-approvals and Pre-certifications.

Wind Certification & Wind Testing

Since Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida in 1992, building officials in wind-prone regions have implemented strict standards for building envelopes and outdoor equipment. Windstorms have only are becoming more frequent and intense.

Pre-approvals from Miami-Dade County NOA and Florida DBPR focus on building envelope while Pre-certifications for International Building Code (IBC) and Florida Building Code (FBC) demonstrate position retention and prevention of flying debris during a high wind event.

Blast and Physical Security Certification & Testing

Terrorist activity and industrial accidents in recent decades have necessitated product standards to require blast, ballistic, vehicle impact, and forced-entry resistance of products to meet embassy, defense, industrial and other high threat applications.

Testing to numerous standards and structural simulation can provide Pre-certified product that can be quickly deployed to high threat environments.

Vibration Isolation & Anchorage

Building design keeps evolving to increase spans and decrease materials. This can increase floor deflections and therefore increase the potential for vibration and noise transmittal through the structure. We carefully evaluate and provide optimized solutions to mitigate these risks.

Whether isolation is required or equipment can be directly attached to the structure, we will provide optimized anchorage design to minimize field drilling and housekeeping pad size.
