Seismic design

We have been working for clients from the private and public sectors for over 30 years on the seismic design of buildings and infrastructure. We were initially pioneers in this field and are now one of the world’s leading experts.

We offer the following services:

  • Earthquake risk assessments
  • Simulate the impact of an earthquake on a specific structure using numerical models
  • Taking vibration measurements on existing structures
  • Designing earthquake-resistant structures using numerical models
  • Providing support in the implementation phase. 

State-of-the-art technology

We provide pragmatic solutions for improving seismic design in a wide variety of structures – from residential buildings and educational institutions to infrastructure constructions. We also continue to participate in national and international governing bodies with a view to developing new guidelines and standards for improving seismic design. Our experts have established the requirements in seismic design for essential infrastructure projects, such as very long tunnels. As proof engineers we are responsible for the seismic design of nuclear installations in Switzerland.
