CG Engineering was hired by Seattle Public Utilities to perform a seismic vulnerability assessment of a 100+ year old bolted steel tank surrounded by a masonry shell and a 55 year old welded steel and concrete elevated viewing deck. Our report included estimates for the recommended work, anticipated life of the coatings and structures, and estimated replacement cost for SPU’s future budget planning.
