Seismic restraint is used "to prevent nonstructural components from overturning or moving that could lead to property damage and/or loss of human life." The Owner, architect, and structural engineer need to coordinate the proper MEP system for their project. Critical facilities, such as hospitals, fire stations, police stations, data centers, gathering places, etc. need to remain operational after a seismic event. If these facilities aren't properly seismically restrained, it could severely impact human health and life. In this presentation you will learn about IBC code compliance, specifications, design, applications, and proper installation of seismic restraints as it applies to MEP commercial construction.
