Earthquake refit for Basel police precinct

Gruner Lüem AG carried out a seismic resistance analysis of the Clarastrasse police precinct in Basel. In order to bring seismic safety levels in line with current norms, carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic and steel plates were mounted, new earthquake-proof concrete walls were cast, and a dilatation joint connecting to the adjoining building was installed.
Gruner Lüem AG developed various reinforcement options, prepared the necessary tender documents and supervised construction work.
