The world’s tallest full-scale building ever tested on an earthquake simulator is expected to transform sustainable building design across Canada

RJC Engineers (RJC), a leading Canadian-based building structure and enclosure engineering firm, announced today its participation in the seismic testing of the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) TallWood project, currently underway in San Diego, California. The NHERI TallWood project is a National Science Foundation-funded research effort that aims to investigate mass timber buildings' earthquake resilience by simulating large earthquakes on a 10-story mass timber building, the tallest ever tested on a shake table. The building includes 3-stories of enclosure systems to assess their interaction with the structure to develop and validate seismic design methodology, while also researching the impact on building enclosure. This first-of-its-kind initiative is expected to transform sustainable building design, and reduce the carbon impact of the construction industry in Canada.

RJC Engineers (RJC), a leading engineering consulting firm, is excited to announce the relocation of its Montreal office to a new, state-of-the-art space. The move is part of RJC's ongoing commitment to providing exceptional services to its clients and supporting its continued growth in Montreal.

RJC Engineers (RJC) is proud to announce its further commitment to sustainability by becoming a signatory of SE2050 – the Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program. The program provides an accessible sustainability program for individual structural engineers and structural engineering firms, with an accountable commitment strategy of active engagement on projects and sharing of information to achieve zero net carbon structures by 2050.
