Wondering when the next big earthquake will rattle the Golden State? According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), there is a 72 percent chance that the San Francisco Bay Area will experience a magnitude 6.7 earthquake or greater within the next 30 years. If we don’t take steps now to make our built environment safer and more resilient, the Bay Area could see significant damage and loss of life, followed by long-term economic and social losses. City leaders in San Francisco are looking at different ways to address the growing need to protect the city from a disastrous outcome when the “Big One” shakes the region. Building on the success of its Soft Story Retrofit Program, San Francisco is turning its attention to two of the city’s most hazardous building types: concrete tilt-ups and non-ductile concrete. Join us for a discussion with representatives from San Francisco’s Office of Resilience & Capital Planning on this new program.
