Case Study: Private Residence :: Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix

Industry: Rehabilitation & Retrofit

Product: Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM)

Location: Private Residence in Portland, OR

Scope: Like many homes built in Portland, Oregon in the early 20th century, this Reed District home was constructed with a full basement consisting of unreinforced concrete foundation and walls. Shortly after the current owners purchased the home, they knew they wanted to add structural integrity to the home in order to better withstand a seismic or wind event.

Solution: Simpson Strong-Tie’s Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) system was used to strengthen unreinforced concrete basement walls at a Portland residence and provide a fresh new look for years to come.
