We provide engineering analysis for the existing structure and drawings to bring your building into compliance with the seismic retrofit ordinance. The drawings and calculations are submitted to the city for approval, and we obtain ready to issue plans for our clients.
MOMENT FRAME & CANTILEVERED COLUMN
We laterally brace soft-story buildings by installing each moment frame, and/or cantilevered columns depending on the site conditions. Each moment frame and/or cantilevered column is designed and built specifically for each application. Moment frame and cantilevered columns are the most effective way to strengthen your structure to withstand the lateral force of an earthquake.
We install sheer walls, Hardy Frames, and Strong Wall products to reinforce existing walls to withstand lateral force. Our engineers will assess your building to determine if reinforcing walls will bring your building into compliance with the Los Angeles seismic retrofit ordinance.
Our trained professionals will work with the City of Los Angeles to develop a custom tenant habitability plan tailored to your specific situation. We take care of everything from A to Z to ensure you can recoup portions of the seismic retrofit project cost from your tenants.
BOLTING & BRACING
Our engineers and construction personnel are experts in reinforcing raised foundation buildings. From bolting the under-structure to the foundation, to bracing existing cripple walls, we will make sure your building can withstand the shear force of an earthquake.
We provide an extensive range of foundation repair services. Our services include repairing undersized and cracked foundations. We are experts at underpinning, strengthening, removing, replacing, and re-leveling your foundation.
