Post-Earthquake Reconnaissance

Following the Nisqually earthquake in Washington State’s Puget Sound region and the Wells, Nevada earthquake , Erickson Structural personnel inspected numerous facilities to determine the extent of structural damages. The scope involved a variety of building types, from commercial/retail, hotel/hospitality, and warehouse structures, to private residences, and involved a variety of structural systems, such as, unreinforced masonry, wood framing, and structural steel.

Erickson Structural personnel were required to provide critical information in an extremely tight time frame, and carefully differentiate between new and pre-existing damage.
