Seismic Protection

VMB is prepared to offer seismic protection solutions, including coordination with the other specialists by including a thorough engineering cost-benefit analysis.

VMB developed the first Tuned Mass Damper system in South America (the Parque Araucano building) and is currently prepared to offer base isolation solutions with both friction pendulum systems as well as lead-rubber bearings; provide energy dissipation device solutions based on viscous dampers, as well  as the development of new target-specific devices required for unique structural engineering challenges.

VMB has developed the first base isolated buildings with friction pendulum systems in Chile: Sonda Datacenter and office buildings in La Dehesa.
