Provided structural engineering services for the seismic upgrade assessment of the historic Ankeny Pump Station, situated below the west side of the Burnside Bridge in Portland. Constructed in the 1920s, the one-story building is approximately 1600-sf, with a sub-grade pump room. Expanded in 1947, and modified again in the 1960s and 1990s. Catena evaluated the facility to allow continued occupation and use for most of its normal intended function immediately following an earthquake. catena was selected for this project as the result of our extensive expertise in the seismic rehabilitation of historic structures, and our understanding of performance based design.
