Doorway Design With Earthquake Safety

This building was purchase by a chiropractor who wanted to widen the existing entry, and cut a new interior doorway through an existing concrete block wall. We provided calculations and details he needed to obtain a building permit. The building had a few areas of concern, which would have been a danger in an earthquake, which we addressed in our design.
