EMG’s licensed engineers, architects, and technical professionals hold extensive knowledge of ASTM-E2026-07 Standard Guide for Seismic Risk Assessment of Buildings, as well as in engineering seismic design and construction methods.
For Seismic Risk Assessments, typical EMG reports present the site seismic risks and building damage potential, utilizing probable maximum loss assessment parameters described in ASTM-2026-07 and ASTM-2557-07 guide standards. Once the report is complete, we are available to discuss the results with our clients, as to the impact of the findings in support of their critical investment and planning decisions.
Seismic Zone Map
Use the map link below to download a reference copy of the Seismic Zone Map of the United States as was published in the Uniform Building Code. We’ve found that this map comes in handy as a quick reference to easily identify projects located in areas that have the greatest potential to be impacted by seismic activity.
The zones identified take into consideration the geographic and historical distribution of earthquakes and rank seismicity from 0 to 4 in a visually discernable color coded map. Areas in Zones 0 and 1 have the lowest probability of damaging ground motion, while those in Zone 4 have the highest probability.
