FEATURED PROJECTS

Ottawa, ON Canada

The Supreme Court of Canada  building sits in downtown Ottawa in the parliamentary precinct. The building houses the highest courts in the country and is used both as a court, offices and a library. The structure was constructed about 80 years ago and designed by renowned architect Ernest Cormier, and is therefore currently being studied in the preliminary step in a substantial retrofit of the structure.

Multiple vibration-based tests were conducted on the structure by our team in order to obtain the following from the structure:

- Determine the baseline of the structure

- Extract the dynamic characteristics of the structure

- Modal identification

- Condition assessment to determine integrity and connectivity across the structure

- Examine the towers to mitigate resonance effects with the bulk of the structure

- Converting ambient level properties to higher shaking level properties

- Vibration-based global seismic evaluation (HAZUS)

- Vibration-based component level seismic evaluation (FEMA P-58)

- Collaboration to calibrate the finite-element model of the structure
