What makes a similar-sized earthquake in one part of the world so much more devastating than in another? It largely comes down to how the buildings and infrastructure are constructed and how building owners and civic leaders prepare. The majority of damage we associate with seismic activity – including loss of life – involves failure of man-made structures that is preventable.
As a structural engineering firm specializing in earthquake retrofits, our team prides itself on identifying potential seismic hazards and implementing retrofit programs to safeguard our client’s commercial and multi-family buildings. We prepare and implement seismic engineering to significantly reduce potential loss of life and property damage associated with earthquakes.
Our team of certified engineers are fully-licensed and bonded, with decades of earthquake engineering and retrofitting experience. They evaluate each structure for potential weaknesses, compare the building environment with code requirements for new construction, and set priorities for mitigation and implementation
Optimum Seismic’s seismic engineering services include:
- Structural Engineering and Design
- Constructability Analysis
- Cost Estimates and Analysis

Taking the necessary steps in advance to improve a building’s performance during an earthquake can make all the difference when a seismic event occurs. These actions can have a lasting impact on the longevity of the building, preservation of equity investment, and the safety of those living or working in the building.
