Earthquake Resistance Reinforcement
Some structures under the former earthquake resistance standards prior to 1981 have been modified with earthquake proof reinforcements to satisfy new earthquake resistance standards. Ways in which their earthquake resistance has been improved may include reinforcing the foundation, fixing the junctions, adding shear walls, reducing the weight of the roof, and more.
