Saiful/Bouquet’s strong expertise in high-tech seismic design has earned many commissions for the design of mission critical essential facilities. In California’s high seismic zones, such facilities are typically expected to remain operational following a strong earthquake. This often requires base isolation, damping systems, and high tech nonlinear analysis. Our cutting edge designs have saved our clients millions and demonstrated that exceptional seismic performance does not require the kind of functional compromises often associated with these types of facilities.
