Ecuador Earthquake Damage spans
200-km coastline

April 16, 2016 • 7.8-magnitude earthquake

As the death toll from the April 16, 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Ecuador continued to rise, the magnitude of the disaster came more clearly into focus. The earthquake struck off the west coast of Ecuador, injuring 2,500 people and killing more than 670 people. The area severely affected was huge, stretching more than 200 km along the Ecuadorian coastline. Read Dr. Miyamoto’s daily journals about our response in Ecuador.

  • Miyamoto, they bring all the expertise, taking into account the seismic area that we are in. – Richard T. Hale III, The Hale Corp.

  • There are dangerous buildings everywhere on earth. Unless we speak out and build better, we will see many more of  these tragedies in our lifetimes. – Kit Miyamoto

  • This building can withstand an unlimited number of earthquakes. That’s the difference… In the event of a major earthquake, this airport will be the center of emergency response for Southern California. – Dan Feger, Executive Director, Bob Hope Airport

  • As structural engineers, we have a responsibility to prevent these disasters. – Kit Miyamoto

  • It is nice to see the proactive approach you and your team have undertaken for Nepal earthquake… I still remember one of your slides, which says, ‘There is a cost for doing nothing.’ – Tamorish Kole, Society for Emergency Medicine, India


  • Yeah… Save people. Protect people. Teach; it is your mission … Never stop moving to the end of the world to do the best things. – Facebook Follower

  • They can be counted upon for creative solutions that balance risk from the perspective of a principal. We value their work with the highest regard. – Kipp Blewett, Rubicon Partners

  • After talking to Miyamoto, we decided to do a complete retrofitting of the structure as well as an expansion. An earthquake by itself is not a fatality. It is how you build that makes the difference. – Richard Buteau, Karibe Hotel Owner

Kathmandu, Nepal Earthquake

April 25, 2015 • 7.8-magnitude earthquake

On April 25, 2015 Kathmandu, Nepal was struck by a  7.8-magnitude earthquake. In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, many large organizations stepped up to provide immediate relief by supplying food and water, temporary shelter and medical support. While this support is critical, we provided expert earthquake structural engineering and reconstruction advice quickly, such as assessing whether homes and buildings are safe to re-enter and helping locals develop a plan for rebuilding or retrofitting to seismic standards that will withstand the next large earthquake. Contact our Nepal office.

To date, we have more than 90 damage-assessment projects completed for private and public organizations and international agencies and many retrofit projects underway.
