Seismic Retrofitting in Van Nuys: A Guide


When it comes to seismic retrofitting in Van Nuys, there is no company more qualified or experienced than Retrofit1. We have completed over 300 retrofit projects to date, with a full staff of caring professionals to manage the process from start to finish.

Our latest project was on Tiara Street in Van Nuys, California. The building owner contacted us to retrofit their property to comply with the Los Angeles City Seismic Retrofit Ordinance. This ordinance requires that certain buildings be retrofitted to improve their resistance to earthquakes.

The building on Tiara Street is a 4-6 unit structure, and the most common seismic vulnerability for this type of building is tuck-under parking. In order to retrofit the property, we used braced or moment-resisting steel frames and cantilevered steel columns.

The Retrofit1 team faced several challenges during this project, but our experience and expertise allowed us to overcome them and successfully retrofit the building. The results exceeded the client’s expectations, and they were very satisfied with our service.

If you need seismic retrofitting for your property, don’t hesitate to contact Retrofit1. We will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your building is safe and compliant with all city ordinances.
