Downtown Brewery Masonry Walls Seismic Strengthening

Commercial Seismic Retrofit with Carbon Fiber and Translucent Glass

Problem vs Solution
  • Restaurant owner wanted to open up the 2nd and 3rd floors which were damaged in a fire 10 years prior
  • Work permits required a seismic evaluation which resulted in the need for seismic strengthening to comply with FEMA 356 code
  • StrongHold™ was designed to strengthen the unreinforced masonry for seismic events
  • StrongHold™ translucent glass was utilized in order to preserve the original look of the historic masonry
  • The seismic strengthening was successfully designed, installed, and inspected allowing the owner to open up two additional floors of the restaurant
