AREVA sought to build a uranium enrichment plant with six separation building modules (SBM), each to be supported on base isolators and located on either side of a central special moment resistance frame (SMRF) equipment hallway structure.  Each SBM contains many centrifuge chains.  SGH performed a structural peer review of the SBM and SMRF hallway.  Subsequent to our review, we developed and designed an alternate precast concrete slab system and evaluated base isolation concepts for the SBM.
