Seismic Retrofitting in Los Angeles: Protecting Your Building from Earthquakes


When it comes to protecting your home or business from earthquakes, there is no such thing as being too prepared. That’s why our team at Retrofit1 was thrilled to work with a client on their 11468 Venice blvd retrofit project. The building, which is made of wood frames, was vulnerable to damage in the event of an earthquake due to its tuck-under parking. To solve this problem, we retrofitted the building with braced or moment-resisting steel frames and cantilevered steel columns. This will help to protect the building and its occupants in the event of an earthquake.

We understand that retrofitting can be a daunting and disruptive process, which is why we assign a project manager to each job. Our project manager will work with you every step of the way to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that you are always up-to-date on the status of the project. We also have a full staff of caring professionals who are experienced in managing seismic retrofits from start to finish. This includes developing a tenant habitability plan, issuing tenant notices and communicating with tenants during construction, and recovering costs at the end of the project.

We are proud to have helped our client retrofit their building to better protect it from earthquakes and we are always available to answer any questions you may have about the process. Contact us today to learn more about our services or to get started on your own retrofit project.
