Seismic Retrofitting

Seismic retrofit services

Recent developments in seismic standards and increased importance of some structures to survive more severe earthquakes have led to the process of seismic retrofitting. Older bridges and structures are usually designed to acceptable codes and standards of their times, without provision for extra strengthening. In many cases, seismic retrofitting can be very complex and inconvenient.

KWH works closely with clients to ensure that retrofitting procedures and work are carried out with high safety standards while properly balancing impact to existing usage and cost savings.
