You are invited to our free Soft-Story retrofit seminar!
Subject: Learn more about the soft-story mandatory law, the timeframe, tenant habitability requirements and the basic principles behind retrofit engineering and construction.
Presenter: President of LA Retrofit – Ph.D. in Structural Engineering
Older buildings are not designed to withstand shakings from earthquakes and usually have a
‘soft’ story which may collapse during an earthquake.
Our engineer inspects building to get dimensions, identifying structural system, and does health assessment.
Plan and Permit
Highly experienced engineer determines available strength of building and efficiently design retrofit plans only for the shortcomings.
Highly experienced contractor constructs the plans safely, quickly and efficiently under constant engineer monitoring.
Our engineering staff and contractors are highly experienced and educated in site visit, engineering design, and construction. We are capable of assessing the existing strength of your building and prepare a highly economic retrofit plan; so we only strengthen the building for the shortcomings. Our crew members are highly experienced and each project is directly
supervised by our engineers for customer satisfaction and quality assurance.
Our team consists of civil engineers and contractors specialized in the seismic retrofit of buildings.
We understand the seismic behavior of the building and retrofit alternatives. We design efficient and economic plan.
LA-Retrofit team has more than 40 years of experience, is founded by experienced experts and
supported by team of engineers and highly skilled contractors. Our engineers visit every building and will be
present for the retrofit process to ensure quality and safety.
LA Retrofit engineers and crew have experience in broad range of projects including construction, retrofit, and
LA Retrofit team members have helped and are helping U.S. Geological Survey to understand dynamics of
earthquake triggering and effects in multiple occasions.
