Capability:   Structural FRP Reinforcement
Location:United States

5959 W. Century Blvd, a 13-story non-ductile concrete  building originally built in 1966, underwent conversion into a dual-branded select service hotel with rooftop amenities including a swimming pool. As part of the conversion, a full seismic retrofit is performed that includes adding new concrete shear walls and foundations and wrapping the interior columns with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP was used on this project in order increase the displacement capacity of the  non-ductile columns, ensuring that gravity load carrying capacity at the expected seismic drift was maintained.
