Sherman Oaks Soft Story Retrofit: Retrofit1 Successfully Completes Project


When it comes to soft story retrofits, our team at Retrofit1 has the experience and expertise to get the job done right. We were recently hired by a client to retrofit their wood-framed apartment building at 14924 Dickens Street in Sherman Oaks, CA.

This particular building is vulnerable to seismic activity due to its tuck-under parking and wood frame construction. To mitigate this, we implemented a braced or moment-resisting steel frame retrofit, as well as cantilevered steel columns. This will help to keep the building safe and secure in the event of an earthquake.

The project was not without its challenges, but our team was up for the task. We successfully completed the retrofit and the client was very satisfied with the results.

If you are in need of a soft story retrofit for your own property, we encourage you to give us a call. Our team will work with you to find the best solution for your needs and budget. We are confident that you will be happy with the results of our work.
