CDG is excited to announce our new engineering video series! Throughout the series we will explore different topics that our staff specializes in. Videos will be released monthly and available on our social pages, as well as here on our website.
Check out our premier video in which Paul Cardwell and Evan Wilson discuss considerations in seismic design.
“One of the big seismic considerations that you need to look out for on a new project is your site conditions. One of our most challenging projects, at least from my standpoint, was a project in a really high seismic hazard area with poor soil conditions. It actually had liquefiable sand which during an earthquake event essentially turns the soil to water. It liquefies.”
