What Strengthening Means to Us
Safeguarding users is the main objective of our seismic strengthening. Other objectives also come into consideration depending on the socio-economic importance and the residual service life of the structure; these include maintaining emergency services (hospitals, barracks, etc.), protecting equipment (major industrial facilities), conserving the national heritage (historic monuments), safe evacuation of the building, etc.
Limestone Engineers Ltd helps construction companies to translate their objectives into technical performance requirements to be met by the strengthened or repaired structure. The level of protection is the intersection between a level of seismic stress and a damage limit state of the structure
