Due to substantial revisions of the International Building Code (IBC), regions of the United States that are not typically considered at risk for earthquakes are now required to meet building codes to protect building occupants in the event of an earthquake.
What is Seismic Compliance?
Building structures must be designed with the safety its occupants and continuous function in mind during and after a major earthquake. Seismic standards are based on the conditions of the soil, how the structure will be used, and the region the building is located. When these important factors fail, the risk for occupant harm and building dysfunction and loss increase.
