Earthquakes give rise to a significant number of problems that affect environmental, seismic, and economic risks forthelocalsand construction sites. For the first time in the last 40 years, another local zero depth earthquake was registered in the territory of the city of Almaty. In terms of intensity, this was a 3-4-point earthquake. At 100 meters from the tectonic fault, there is a 16-storey building with a stiffening core and an engineering seismometric service station. With the use of AT 1105 sensors and a PCM-8 recorder, instrumental records of accelerations in the basement and on the roof of the building were recorded, and spectral β curves were constructed. The effective duration of the seismic impact in the basement of the building was quite significant, 47-56 seconds. There is undoubtedly an increase in the intensity of local earthquakes compared to 2007-2014. It was found that at the basement level the value of the vertical component is significantly less than the horizontal one. It is assumed that the abnormally high values of acceleration in the horizontal plane are a consequence of the presence of a tectonic fault near the building. Instrumental records of acceleration (accelerograms) can be used in calculations of both the seismic resistance of an object and the assessment of environmental, social, economic, and non-economic risks.
