We're shaking things up when it comes to earthquake engineering. Our world-class facilities, which are currently undergoing a more than $30 million expansion, offer researchers state-of-the-art equipment and laboratory space to conduct cutting-edge research. The result? Engineered structures that are better able to withstand an earthquake's destructive force, saving both lives and money.
