The Base Isolation training was a collaboration between Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Universitas Andalas (UNAND), Beca NZ and GNS Science. Participants came from Local Government (5 StIRRRD districts), National Government, Private consultants and Universities.
The training involved a series of lectures and discussion sessions, practical group design work and a half–day field visit to three base-isolated buildings in Padang, including a tour of the base-isolated features of the Ibis Hotel, where the training was held. Topics included concepts of Base Isolation, design of new buildings and retrofit of structures including bridges, details of isolation systems and service connections, base isolation of tsunami shelters, and treatment of base isolated buildings after earthquakes.
