Blessed Sacrament Church - Seattle, WA
Portions of the structural brick masonry exterior walls were damaged during the Nisqually Earthquake that occurred on February 28, 2001. We assessed the structural damage to the building after the earthquake and designed repairs to the masonry walls, bracing for cantilevered exterior parapets, and ties between the roof structure and the walls. We also recommended the removal of the masonry chimney at the southwest corner of the building and designed its replacement. This building is a registered historic structure and all repairs were designed to preserve the original appearance.
