City of Seattle has completed and validated its list of Unreinforced Masonry (URM) buildings confirming that there are more than 1,150 URM buildings throughout Seattle. The Department of Construction and Inspections is now meeting regularly to set forth policies to require that these buildings be retrofit and brought up to current codes. Prior to policy requirements CHG braced the Taylor Edwards building near Safeco Field. CHG also performed seismic upgrades to the Veteran’s Administration for Mental Health Services building in Bremerton, Washington.
