The article is devoted to the description of the analytical method of reducing the horizontal surface seismic effect transmission to the building or structure during an earthquake. The impact reducing effect can be achieved by the constructive inclusion of compensating underlayment of a highly deformable material with low modulus in shear which is located between the foundation and the bottom slab of the building. The dependence of the of underlayment compensating properties on its physical characteristics is shown.
