Seismic Buildings

03/10/2008 6:22 PM

I am looking to discuss electrical options for how engineers are designing drop ceilings, flourescent lights that go in them, and what is being used in the design to attach them. I am interested in hearing about any building that is being designed, but really interested in buildings in seismic areas.

Have you looked at the UBC, (Universal Building Code).

I don't know if it would help. I do Seismic Testing, but its for Nuclear.

I have had experience designing support for things that failed initial testing, but that is basically beefing things up.

This probally doesn't help.

Thank you for your response. And yes, I have checked into the UBC and the ICC.
