The possibility of seismic activity is a factor affecting every building in the Pacific Northwest. Design of older structures was primarily focused on providing life safety in case of fire, and often did not include seismic considerations. Seismic studies, recommendations, and upgrade designs for these vulnerable structures have been a significant part of KGA’s work history. We have provided these services for schools, health care facilities, office buildings, senior living communities, mixed use developments, public service facilities, and historic structures. Our work helps secure the essential structures in our community.
With decades of experience working together on a wide range of project types, we at Walsh Construction have found the people of KGA to be truly great team players and highly creative engineers.

We have found KGA to be a great partner in creating great buildings across the Pacific Northwest!
