seismic bracing

Scappoose Water Treatment Plant, Scappoose, OR

Miller Consulting Engineers performed seismic bracing for equipment, chemical storage tanks, pump anchorages, and pipe bracing for improvements to this water treatment facility. The designs developed by our firm were amplified to meet the criteria for essential facilities. And, as part of a design-build construction team, our rapid response time and flexibility kept the project on track, while meeting the needs of the other team members.

Intel, Ronler Acres facility pipe bracing project
As part of infrastructure improvements for the facility, Miller Consulting Engineers, Inc. provided structural design services for Intel’s Ronler Acres campus.  Located in Hillsboro, Oregon, Ronler Acres is Intel's largest high tech manufacturing facility in Oregon. As the largest chip manufacturer in the world, Intel is reliant on its many facilities to remain an industry leader in chip manufacturing.
Miller Consulting Engineers provided structural engineering services for the contractor on this project to provide value engineering and problem solving to key areas of piping systems vital to Intel’s high tech manufacturing processes.  Our role in the construction process has been instrumental in providing safe structural designs for these manufacturing process components.
Innovative, economical bracing systems are key to the success of this continuing project.  Our services include field investigation, location and identification of required seismic pipe system bracing.  For this project our staff members worked closely with the contractor to provide customized structural details that were practical and reduced difficulties during installation.

Miller Consulting Engineers worked closely with Kinetic Systems, a leading mechanical contractor. 

Triquint Semiconductor Clean Room Tools Project

Miller Consulting Engineers, Inc. provided seismic bracing design for a clean room ceiling and floors including support for production equipment ranging from 200 lbs to 10,000 lbs at TriQuint SemiConductor's Beaverton, Oregon, facility.

In this project the client requested that the design forces be developed to provide continuing operation following a code level seismic event.  Special considerations for the facility required that a structural needs assessment was performed to confirm the required structural performance of the facility.

Our knowledge and experience with high tech clients allow us to provide recommendations of strengthening measures that meet the clients' goals for each project.  Understanding the special needs of these facilities, as well as the related costs associated with the loss of production as a result of an earthquake, is often critically important for these projects. 

Over the past 15 years, Miller Consulting Engineers, Inc. has provided structural engineering design  services for Triquint Semiconductors either directly, or indirectly through relationships with various subcontractors.
