Building Safety With Earthquake Risk Report |Skycon
EARTHQUAKE FACT OF OUR COUNTRY
As it is known, our country is located in one of the most active earthquake zones in the world. It has become essential for our country to emphasize the importance of earthquake strengthening studies and static analyzes to ensure life safety in case of a possible earthquake. The earthquake with a magnitude of 7.6, which covered 10 provinces in the past months and was described as a disaster of 100 years, and the earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 in Istanbul in the past years; While bringing to our minds the question of how safe the buildings we study, work and live in are against earthquakes, it has brought us face to face with the reality of earthquakes.
Earthquake is a natural event that suddenly shakes the earth's surface as a result of fractures in the earth's crust and cannot be prevented. In other words, it is the shifting of the earth on which we have built life under our feet. The earthquake, which ended countless lives because the necessary precautions were not taken in the past, will continue to endanger the lives of our loved ones unless the necessary precautions are taken. What should be done in such a situation is “Not earthquake, unconsciousness kills!” with the principle of minimizing the damages that can be caused by human factors.
EARTHQUAKE RISK REPORT: WHAT TO DO TO CONFIRM BUILDING SAFETY
One of the studies that should be done in order to avoid the destructive effects of the earthquake is the identification of unstable and rotten structures. The risk or durability of a building is interpreted by looking at the EARTHQUAKE RISK REPORT result. In its simplest definition, an earthquake risk report is the document that confirms the safety of your building and decides to transform the building and gain flexibility if necessary. At the same time, the earthquake risk report is the first step to be taken in order to benefit from the urban transformation projects in force. So, how to get a building risk report? Building occupants who think their homes are at risk of disaster should prepare some documents to receive an earthquake risk report. People should first obtain the static or architectural projects of the building from the Zoning or Land Registry Directorate of the municipalities they are affiliated with. In addition, they can start the process by preparing other documents (technical, engineering reports of your building, Photocopy of Land Registry, identity card, etc.) included in the regulations. The earthquake report you will receive can only be sent to T.C. It will be valid if it is given by institutions approved by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. For this reason, we can demonstrate the sensitivity of our buildings against earthquakes with these tests.
