Having investigated the performance of structures during more than thirty earthquakes around the world, WJE professionals are experienced providers of earthquake engineering services for all types of new and existing structures. As leaders in the study of earthquake engineering, WJE professionals have participated in the development of many of the earthquake engineering evaluation and analysis approaches currently in use and are regularly engaged to provide training on various aspects of seismic evaluation and design.
Effective seismic evaluation and design requires a practical understanding of earthquake motions and structure response. WJE professionals are experts in seismic performance evaluations that go beyond standard practices and building code requirements. WJE’s solutions provide for safer structures, limit earthquake damage, and allow clients to quickly return their structures to normal service.
WJE earthquake engineers are able to provide cost-effective seismic upgrade designs using experience with advanced materials and technologies that minimize building disruptions and avoid unnecessary structural changes.
