Tilt-Up Buildings Seismic Retrofit Services We Offer:

Due to inadequate structural design of buildings constructed in the early and mid-1970s, tilt-up commercial buildings are vulnerable to seismic events, highlighting the necessity for Optimum Seismic’s tilt-up building retrofit services.

Because the walls of these buildings have limited or weak connections at the roof to walls and continuity ties, during an earthquake, these concrete walls may pull apart from the roof creating a collapse hazard.

As a building owner, don’t leave yourself vulnerable to the numerous risks involved with such an event, including loss of life, injury, and legal action and repair costs. Our seismic retrofitting of reinforced concrete buildings can strengthen your tilt-up building and mitigate the risks a seismic event brings about.

Optimum Seismic will increase your building’s structural integrity as our retrofit programs ensure your building will pass any future seismic inspection.

Our full-service tilt-up building retrofits typically include:

  • Addition of roof-to-wall anchors

  • Installation of continuity ties

  • Roof nailing (if needed or scheduled as part of a re-roof)

  • Steel braced frames and concrete footings (if needed based on the building’s geometry)

Optimum Seismic features expert design, steel fabrication and construction for all retrofit options. Our team has decades of experience working with clients to customize programs that match their goals and needs. We blend today’s needs with future possibilities to engineer an optimal retrofit solution.
