Event description

Description

Unreinforced Masonry (URM) buildings present a challenge for earthquake-prone communities. There are over 1,650 URM buildings in Portland and millions around the world. These structures are important historic, architectural, cultural, and economic landmarks, but their vulnerability to earthquakes imperils these buildings and the people in them.

The URM Seismic Resilience Symposium, July 18-20, 2019, is a three-day event for architects, engineers, owners, property managers, and anyone that might deal with URM buildings.

Topics
The symposium will include two days of lectures focusing on topics and concerns related to URM buildings, including:

  • Earthquake Background
  • URM Construction and Seismic Engineering Technology Options
  • Building Codes and Historic Preservation Requirements
  • Seismic Upgrade Project Considerations and Costs
  • Public Policy, Finance, and Resiliency

Speakers
Speakers include prominent engineers and architects from Oregon, Washington, California as well as leading experts from British Columbia, Canada, New Zealand, and Italy.

Project Awards
Project Awards will be presented for URM seismic upgrade projects in several categories:

  • Innovative Seismic Upgrades
  • Cost Effective Seismic Upgrades
  • Historic Preservation
  • Small Project
  • Unbuilt/Research
  • Juror’s Choice Award

Walking Tour
An optional walking tour of URM buildings in Portland on Saturday morning and afternoon, July 20. This tour will allow attendees to experience some of the seismic upgrade projects in person. Space will be limited to 100 attendees.

URM Round Table Discussion with International Speakers
An optional URM round table discussion with our international speakers will be at AIA Oregon office in Portland on Saturday morning, July 20. This will give the opportunity for further discussions on policy and seismic upgrade solutions from perspectives from other seismic locations. Space will be limited to 70 attendees.

Partnership
This symposium is organized in collaboration with the International Masonry Institute (IMI), American Institute of Architects (AIA) Portland, Structural Engineering Association of Oregon (SEAO), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the Association of Preservation Technology Northwest (APT-NW).
