Steel Moment Frames

Part of the rennovation of the building required extra support for the building through the addition of steel bracing. There are 2 sets of these huge steel bars running up from the ground through the 1st and 2nd floors up to the ceiling.

They will be bolted onto these huge metal plates at the ceiling and floor. Although the building held up well in the 2001 Nisqually earthquake, we want to be sure our clients and staff are safe for the next 60 years!
