The historic Ely City Hall, constructed in 1928, is a two story structure of unreinforced masonry bearing wall construction. A study
to determine the building’s ability to withstand seismic events that may occur in the region. Risha Engineering’s goal was to determine
whether seismic retrofit is needed and what may be required. Using ASCE 41-13 standard, the building was evaluated using the Tier 1
