Washington URM Survey

Washington URM Survey

Planning | WA, USA | Completed

ARG is currently working with the Washington Department of Commerce, in partnership with the Washington State Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) and a fifteen-member Advisory Committee, to develop a statewide database-integrated map that illustrates the saturation of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings throughout the State of Washington. The database and map will be used to inform future decisions related to public policy and prioritized funding mechanisms for seismic retrofitting.
