Risk Management Series: Incremental Seismic Rehabilitation of Hotel and Motel Buildings: Providing Protection to People and Buildings   [open pdf - 7MB]

This manual provides owners of hotel and motel buildings with the information necessary to assess the seismic vulnerability of their buildings and to implement a program of incremental seismic rehabilitation for those buildings. "Incremental seismic rehabilitation, an innovative approach that phases in a series of discrete rehabilitation actions over a period of several years, is an effective, affordable, and non-disruptive strategy for responsible mitigation action that can be integrated efficiently into ongoing facility maintenance and capital improvement operations to minimize cost and disruption."
