Los Angeles Soft Story Retrofit – Los Angeles


When it comes to soft story retrofits in Los Angeles, there is no company more qualified than Retrofit1. We have over 20 years of construction and design experience, with over 300 retrofit projects completed to date. We are a full-service company, with a staff of caring professionals who will manage 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 assigned to the soft story retrofit at 4065 McLaughlin Avenue. This building is a wood frame structure with 9-15 units, and is classified as a condo. The retrofit method used was braced or moment-resisting steel frames, with cantilevered steel columns. Seismic vulnerabilities include 2 or more stories, being built under building code standards enacted before January 1, 1978, and tuck-under parking.

We were able to save our clients tens of thousands of dollars by redesigning the plans and providing a high level of customer service throughout the process. The client was extremely satisfied with the results achieved and has since recommended our services to others.

If you are in need of a soft story retro fit, we urge you to contact us today. We will provide you with a free consultation and help you determine the best course of action for your particular situation.
