Emerick has an extensive amount of Seismic upgrades under our belts. We understand the process very well and have perfected many techniques over the years to speed up the duration of the renovations. Most of our upgrades have taken place in highly secured areas, confined spaces with accelerated schedules. Our teams have the knowledge to expedite the project and minimize impact to the surrounding area at the same time. Symantec, Whitman College, Clark College, Milwaukie MS and HS, HP South and North Campus, Five BPA Control Houses, Four BPA Buildings, Oregon State Dome and Oregon State Library to name a few.

Public Service Building Renovation, Salem Oregon

Upgrading this 174,000 sf office facility to current seismic and ADA codes was especially difficult. We expanded the existing elevator core and added structural concrete shear walls up through each of the building's five floors. Other concrete shear walls were constructed using 40' rebar pieces, which were lowered down from the roof through holes cut on each floor into new footings beneath the base slab.

We also constructed a new mechanical penthouse, patched and cleaned the original 1949 marble exterior, applied new sealants, replaced stonework grount joints, and matched new marble panels to existing materials. Inside, we blended new marble panels with older ones in select areas, cleaned and oiled bronze trim, refinished the lobby's plaster ceiling, and relamped the central lighting fixtures.
