On the afternoon of March 31, Mr. Li Tao, president of Safetyinside Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Safetyinside”), a Tangshan-based listed company specializing in seismic isolation and energy dissipation products, and his entourage visited the Institute for investigation and exchange. During their tour, a symposium was held, attended by, besides them, the Institute’s leaders, including President Wang Chunyan, Chief Architect Wu Xiaokun, Chief Engineer Liu Huanzhong, and Director of Engineering Reinforcement Department Ⅴ(also known as the Seismic Isolation and Energy Dissipation Technology Center) Liu Shui, as well as relevant officials from the Municipal Earthquake Bureau and the Municipal High-tech Zone.
At the symposium, Mr. Li stressed the importance of local industry standards for seismic mitigation and absorption technologies, especially of the proposed Hebei provincial standards in this respect, for the construction industry, and demonstrated the application results of such technologies in domestic advanced construction projects.
Chief Engineer Liu Huanzhong shared his opinions. With the signing of the strategic cooperation agreement between the Institute and Safetyinside, he said, the Institute will vigorously promote the formulation of the local industry standards so as to specify the related application technical standards of the construction industry.
President Wang Chunyan said, “Safetyinside’s Intelligent Anti-seismic Products and Equipment Manufacturing Base project, designed by the Institute, started construction yesterday in the city Tangshan.” Safetyinside has brought leading seismic mitigation and absorption technologies to this city. The Institute will join hands with Safetyinside to boost the completion of the local industry standards for seismic mitigation and absorption technologies. She put forward three suggestions for their cooperation: first, Safetyinside set up a technical guidance center, dispatch a technical team to the Institute to provide instruction, and engage in a full-chain technology promotion; second, Safetyinside and the Institute cooperate sincerely to tackle the difficulties in the design process related to the technologies, and to integrate new technologies into the design drawings; third, both sides jointly drive the development of high-tech industries in the city.
The officials from relevant authorities extended their appreciation for Safetyinside investing in Tangshan. As an earthquake-prone city, Tangshan especially needs scientific and technological forces to be injected into its modern emergency industries. They will help with the work in respect with the local standards for seismic isolation technologies to get the standards established by July 28, 2020, striving to build Tangshan into an earthquake-resistant and disaster-prevention demonstration city and the home of the earthquake-resistant technological standards.
After the meeting, the guests visited the Institute’s Seismic Isolation and Energy Dissipation Technology Center, and had in-depth exchanges on related seismic-isolation issues and BIM design.
