Seattle Public Utilities North Operations Center
The Seattle Public Utilities North Operations Center consists of an under-reinforced concrete masonry building constructed in 1963 and a pre-manufactured steel building addition constructed in 1997. The buildings were originally part of a dairy production facility. A seismic analysis of these two buildings were completed for Seattle Public Utilities to assist in long-term planning and selection between several options for developing future priorities and budget. A visual condition assessment was performed in addition to a seismic evaluation of each building in accordance with ASCE 41-17. Recommendations and structural deficiencies where identified and summarized in a final report presented to Seattle Public Utilities and the City of Seattle Department of Finance and Administrative Services.
