Los Angeles Soft Story Retrofit Experts – Los Angeles


When it comes to soft story retrofits in Los Angeles, there is no company more qualified or experienced than Retrofit1. We have completed over 300 retrofit projects in the city, with a success rate that is second to none.

Our latest project was for a client with a wood frame, 7-8 unit, 2-story building on Vinton Avenue. The client was concerned about the seismic vulnerabilities of their property, specifically the tuck-under parking and the fact that it was built under building code standards enacted before January 1, 1978.

After conducting a thorough assessment of the property, we recommended a braced or moment-resisting steel frame retrofit, as well as the installation of cantilevered steel columns. This would solve the client’s seismic vulnerability issues and provide them with the peace of mind they were looking for.

The project was not without its challenges, but our team of experienced professionals was able to overcome them and complete the retrofit successfully. The results were exactly what the client wanted, and they were extremely satisfied with our service.
