Based on recommendations from The Private Schools Earthquake Safety Working Group, the Earthquake Safety Implementation Program (ESIP) for the City and County of San Francisco worked with the Mayor’s Office to introduce legislation requiring seismic assessments of select buildings in all of San Francisco’s private schools. This ordinance, which was signed into law by the Mayor on 1 October 2014, requires a life-safety level evaluation submitted to the Department of Building Inspection within three years of the ordinance’s effective date.  The Archdiocese of San Francisco retained SGH, along with two other firms, to evaluate their schools.
