Los Angeles Retrofit Specialists Reinforce Soft-Story Building


When it comes to protecting your investment and ensuring the safety of your tenants, there is no room for error – that’s why you need the experienced team at Retrofit1 on your side. We have completed over 300 retrofit projects to date, and our team has the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.

For our latest project, we were tasked with retrofitting a soft-story building on Reeves Street in Los Angeles. This type of building is particularly vulnerable to seismic activity, so it was important that we took the necessary steps to fortify it against any potential disasters.

We started by assessing the building and identifying the areas that needed to be strengthened. We then designed a plan that would reinforce the structure without compromising the habitability of the units. Once we had the green light from our client, we began construction.

The project went smoothly for the most part, but we did face some challenges along the way. The biggest challenge was working around the tenants – we had to make sure that they were not inconvenienced or displaced during the construction process. To do this, we assigned a project manager to the job who communicated with the tenants regularly and made sure that their needs were being met. 

In the end, we were able to successfully retrofit the building and our client was very pleased with the results. The tenants were able to stay in their units during construction and they now have the peace of mind that comes with knowing their building is safe in the event of an earthquake.

If you are in need of retrofit services, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be more than happy to assess your building and develop a plan that will keep your tenants safe and sound.
