P-Spectra Risk-based Infrastructure Resilience Planning
Infrastructure is the first line of defense against earthquake-induced injuries, losses and downtime.
Kinetica Consulting works with clients at the project conception and planning stage to ensure that seismic resilience is considered in development and upgrade of capital projects. Kinetica Consulting uses the P-Spectra technology to categorize and efficiently analyze an almost exhaustive list of different combinations of seismic resistant systems for the optimization of building performance. The P-Spectra platform is integrated with state-of-the-art loss estimation tools to identify solutions that best meet clients’ financial constraints and business performance goals. We provide full technical support and assistance to consulting engineers in the design and modelling of advanced seismic protection technologies to ensure an on-budget and on-time project delivery.
