The Christchurch earthquake has taught several lessons that are particularly relevant to British Columbia with respect to the legal framework, design/building codes, construction standards and seismicity.
The presentation summarizes the impact of earthquakes on buildings and key lessons learnt from three perspectives:
- Technical lessons for structural design engineers.
- Practise lessons for small and large building design consultancies.
- Lessons for the engineering profession in BC.
