Old school gets seismic upgrade


This is a nice happy story. I like it! I get too gloomy over everyday stupidities!

What I like most is the use of deep footings. If you can reach the hard stuff, I would always go for that, rather than more exotic means. Of course, then you have to float the whole structure on those footings, which means a lot of steel for an old building.
