Hughes Building S-12 Base Isolation

Hughes Building S-12 Base Isolation

The Hughes Space and Communications Company identified that Building S-12 was at risk of having operations severely interrupted following a major earthquake. Morley Construction Company was engaged as consultant by the planning team to help evaluate alternative solutions. Morley provided the base isolation and seismic strengthening of this 12-story concrete office and laboratory building which houses critical satellite and other space technology laboratories, all of which remained in full operation throughout construction. Work included the remodel of the first floor, exterior walls, and entrance.
