2022 SEAOC Convention

The SP3 Team participated in the 2022 Structural Engineering Association of California (SEAOC) conference and was thrilled to have SP3 Senior Associate, D. Jared DeBock, PhD, PE represent our team by presenting one of our latest ground breaking projects: A practical design procedure for steel moment frames with fluid viscous dampers.

We’ve Moved! SP3 Change of Address

The SP3 Team has moved to a new location in Chico, CA! Please contact our Administrative Manager, Kendall Anderson, at kendall@hbrisk.com to update your customer or vendor account and for any other verification information needed.

Supporting Due Diligence with SP3-SiteHazards

New updates made to SP3-SiteHazards for bring our customers the most reliable tool available for site stability and seismic hazard mapping. Read our recent announcement on advancements made to this tool and for new pricing information.

New Advancements to the SP3-RiskModel

The SP3 Team is pleased to announce advancements to the SP3-RiskModel.  SP3-RiskModel is the most reliable solution for rapid seismic risk assessment, and the only solution that can provide building-specific risk insights for component-level losses, reoccupancy and functional recovery times for business interruption.

New Earthquake Spectra Paper on Functional Recovery

We are proud to announce Earthquake Spectra recently accepted a new paper on post-earthquake functional recovery co-authored by former SP3 team member, Dustin Cook, Ph.D., P.E., and SP3 Co-founder and CEO, Curt Haselton, Ph.D., P.E. This paper comes after 3 years of research by members of the Applied Technology Council (ATC) along with researchers at CU Boulder and accompanies the ATC-138 Functional Recovery (Beta) Method released earlier this year.

Announcing the New ATC-138 Functional Recovery (Beta) Method!

The Applied Technology Council, researchers at CU Boulder, and SP3 teams are pleased to co-announce the release of the ATC-138 Functional Recovery (Beta) Method. This announcement accompanies the official ATC release sent earlier this week.

With the resilient design movement taking off, our teams have been working diligently over the past 3 years to bring you a next-generation method to quantatively estimate post-earthquake building recovery time.

17WCEE Presentation

The 2021 17th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (17WCEE) commenced at Sendai International Centre in Sendai, Japan, from September 27 to October 2, 2021 after its original postponement in 2020.

This year’s theme focused on “Towards Disaster Resilient Society”, and included both in-person and remote presentations from delegates around the world.

SEAOC Convention Presentation

Ed Almeter (SP3) presented on Resilient Design for Functional Recovery at the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) 90th Anniversary Convention.  This included recovery time assessment method updates as part of the ATC-138, recent projects examples, and a call to action. The call proposes that leaders in seismic engineering pursue a coordinated effort to create prescriptive design requirements for resilient design for quick post-earthquake recovery of building function.

SP3 Welcomes Aaron Malatesta to the Team!

The SP3 team welcomes new Senior Associate, Aaron Malatesta! Prior to joining Haselton Baker Risk Group in August 2021, Aaron acted as a technical director for a product manufacturer leading the development of the technical publications and presentations while working with engineers to create resilient designs. He has also practiced structural engineering for consulting firms focused on both buildings and transportation infrastructure.
