Unreinforced Masonry (URM) buildings present a challenge for earthquake-prone communities. There are over 1,650 URM buildings in Portland and millions around the world. These structures are important historic, architectural, cultural, and economic landmarks, but their vulnerability to earthquakes imperils these buildings and the people in them.
The URM Seismic Resilience Symposium is a three-day event for architects, engineers, owners, property managers, and anyone that might deal with URM buildings. AIA HSW and Engineering continuing education credits will be available. Two days of lectures will include topics such as URM Construction and Seismic Engineering Technology Options, Seismic Upgrade Project Considerations and Costs, Building Codes and Historic Preservation Requirements and much more.
