Seismic assessment and improvement of historic buildings present multiple challenges that do not exist on more routine design projects. Historic projects require a radical re-prioritization of engineering focus to be successful. Sherith Israel a pre-1906 building in San Francisco epitomizes that re-prioritization; the project left the historic interior and exterior essentially undisturbed, incorporating both tradition and new technologies, engineering materials, and preservation-oriented engineering methodologies -- including nitinol tension-ties, rocking pilasters, and CFRP catenaries -- to do so.
