Projects using state SRGP funds for seismic work
The seismic renovation for Franklin, Roosevelt and Grant high schools will be designed to meet ASCE/SEI 41-13 “Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings.” ASCE/SEI 41-13 is a national standard published by the American Society of Civil Engineers / Structural Engineers Institute and is recognized by the state of Oregon as an acceptable code for seismic renovations and is considered state of the art.
While the ASCE/SEI 41-13 performance level is often referred to as ‘Life Safety’, it actually consists of two performance levels, a slightly higher level for less intense earthquakes and slightly lower level for more intense earthquakes. The Basic Performance Objective for Existing Buildings (BPOE) used for these buildings includes two structural performance levels, Damage Control at the BSE-1E seismic hazard and Limited Safety structural performance at the BSE-2E seismic hazard.
The intent of ASCE/SEI 41-13 design is to prioritize protection of the occupants, not the buildings.
