Los Angeles Soft-Story Retrofitting: A Case Study

Our team worked with a client on Levering Avenue in Los Angeles to retrofit their 3-story wood frame building. The building was vulnerable to seismic activity due to its tuck-under parking and 2-story height. We recommended a braced or moment-resisting steel frame retrofit, as well as cantilevered steel columns to provide additional support.

We faced some challenges during the project, but our team was able to overcome them and complete the retrofit successfully. The results were exactly what our client wanted, and they were very satisfied with our service. If you are in need of a soft-story retrofit, we encourage you to give us a call at 1-844-473-8761. We would be more than happy to help you protect your property from seismic activity.
