Earthquake engineering for buildings

“Earthquakes don’t kill people. Buildings do!”

In seismically active areas, owners, planners and operators of plants and structures are responsible for their stability, especially in the case of earthquakes.

With over 40 years of experience in earthquake engineering, we can advise you competently on all questions relating to earthquake projects in Germany, Europe and worldwide.

We offer the following services:

  • Preparation and testing of specifications on the subject of earthquakes
  • Design of reinforced concrete, steel and masonry structures for earthquake loads in accordance with European and international standards such as DIN EN 1998-1, ASCE7-10
  • Analyses by means of static and dynamic calculation methods as well as time course calculations
  • Design of earthquake protection systems such as seismic insulation, dampers and absorbers
