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