Description Historical Site Analysis Remedial Safety Measures - Shoring the South Garage against collapse due to natural forces (i.e., seismic, wind, snow, and fire) would require the installation of shear walls and holdowns and bracing of the roof every 25 square feet. Bracing of the roof can be eliminated if the building is locked and is only entered when snow is off the roof and proper warning shall be posted at the doors. Shear walls would be anchored into new concrete foundation walls with proper footings which can be done with shoring and jacking procedures. Electricity would need to be disconnected and sprinklers installed to reduce the fire hazard. Some of the garage doors would need be removed and replaced with shear walls. Broken columns would be replaced. Garage Retrofit - Garage space retrofit requires the installation of shear walls and holdowns. Some of the garage doors would need be be removed and replaced with shear walls. Broken columns would be replaced. Shear walls would be anchored into new concrete foundation walls with proper footings which can be done with shoring and jacking procedures. In this case, board and batten siding would be removed so that plywood or OSB board, which has a higher shear resistance (up to 350 pounds per linear foot), can be placed under the siding. Studs would be added in some areas and headers over the doors. The walls would be covered with fire resistive gypsum wallboard. All existing wiring would be removed and replaced with new wiring. A sprinkler system would be installed. New roof members would be added to strengthen the roof against the 30 psf snow load. Vents would be added at the ridge and the soffit areas to provide the required 1/300 roof ventilation. A concrete floor would be added to give stability to the new foundation. final Report 23 April \6, 2002
