MHP is in the final stages of its fifth major seismic risk evaluation project for a Southern California Unified School District. MHP was awarded the contract in June 2008, with site visits occurring through July and August to observe over 300 elementary, middle, high school, and administrative facilities. The screening level of review is intended to identify high risk buildings, particularly those buildings that may pose a life-safety risk to occupants. MHP’s recommendations will address the seismic safety concerns and present retrofitting options and approximate construction costs. MHP engineers welcome inquiries from Unified School Districts on how they can keep their structures, students, and staff safe.
