Subject: Seismic Retrofit of a Tilt Wall Building in Southern CaliforniaI am going to look at a prospective project, the seismic rehab of a 53,000 SF tilt-wall building. I think the building is about 30 years old. Original design drawings are available (according to the owner). The building is located in Pomona, CA.Some quick questions:
- Does the retrofit primarily deal with the attachment of the wall to the roof diaphragm?
- What is the current "preferred" method to attach the wall to the diaphragm, Zone4 or ?
- What about the roof diaphragm itself? Owner says the existing roof is only about 4-5 years old, but they always tell me that.
- Are there any other component(s) to address?
- Is the governing document GSREB or ?
- I know this varies, but, roughly, what should the owner expect to pay for engineering fees through plan check approval?
- Same as #5 except: What should the owner budget for engineering time during the construction phase?
- Same as #5 except: What is a reasonable estimate of construction costs for the rehab?
- Is there anything else I need to consider?TIA,
