Client Success Story: Seismic Retrofit in Los Angeles

When it comes to soft-story retrofits in Los Angeles, there is only one team that you can trust to get the job done right – Retrofit1. With over 20 years of experience and 300 projects completed, we are the experts in seismic retrofitting.

We were approached by the owner of a 2-story wood frame building in 944 S Berendo St. Los Angeles, CA. This building type is susceptible to seismic activity, and the client was concerned about the tuck-under parking and 2 or more stories.

After assessing the situation, we recommended braced or moment-resisting steel frames, cantilevered steel columns to address the seismic vulnerabilities. This would ensure the safety of the building and its occupants in the event of an earthquake.

We managed the entire process from start to finish, including the tenant habitability plan, tenant notices and communication during construction, and the cost recovery at the end. Our project manager was in constant communication with the client, keeping them updated on the progress of the project.

We are proud to say that the project was completed successfully and the client was very satisfied with our work. If you are in need of a soft-story retrofit in Los Angeles, look no further than Retrofit1. We will get the job done right, on time and on budget.
