EBS recently unveiled the first-of-its-kind buckling-restrained braces, or BRBs, innovation in the entire Middle East, which not only revolutionises the safety and resistance of buildings against any possible earthquake risks and because of their characteristic of resisting equal tension and compression loads, decrease the earthquake load coefficients resulting in better performance and more economy on all the members that resist the earthquake loads.

Tiryakian said that, while the city is considered Zone 2, which 'is not very risky," this seismic code was developed to include factors that would reinforce new buildings to withstand earthquake loads.
It covers general structural design and provides methodology for ascertaining dead and live loading together with soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads as well as combinations of these stressors.
Written for structural engineers, architects, and those involved in preparing and administering local building codes, this document provides requirements for general structural design and includes means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads, and their combinations.
When a building is subjected to earthquake loads, it can collapse from beam column joint failure, which has been attributed to the lack of joint confinement.
