NIH Campus Seismic Risk Asssessment
The 306-acre main campus of the NIH Headquarters includes over 50 structures consisting of hospital and office space, research laboratories, parking structures, libraries, auditoriums, and lodging.
MRCE performed a seismic risk evaluation of all structures on the campus. The study consisted of a hazard characterization, potential damage and losses, and development of emergency protocol and action plans. The project included a risk assessment of non-structural components in the large CRC hospital structure.
