There is increasing research to suggest the next “Big One” could come to this region at any moment, which is why our soft story retrofit programs aim to ensure these type of buildings are in compliance with new legislation and protected from any future seismic event. Soft-story building retrofitting is a key cog in the growing effort to make California communities safer, with more cities across the state adopting similar laws.

There are many benefits to building owners starting their retrofit sooner, rather than later:

  • Retrofitting protects lives and your assets

  • Retrofits help reduce an owner’s liability for injury or death in the event of a quake

  • Some insurance companies offer more favorable terms for retrofitted buildings
