On average there are 1,000 California earthquakes every year. Cities in the region are mandating that property owners earthquake proof their house to safeguard residents from harm. Mega-Builders, Inc. has been called in many times to reinforce older soft story buildings via a seismic retrofit to bring them up to par with today’s far stricter building codes.

Each building must be individually evaluated. Mega-Builders Inc. carefully inspects the building to isolate the most practical and cost efficient solution. Utilizing our decades of experience in California, we are able to design and engineer in a way that saves on the construction costs.

The most common solutions utilized: steel moment frames and plywood shear walls (strengthening existing walls), along with foundation repair & foundation bolt (enhancing the base). This adds the proper support that the structure will need against seismic activity. As each Encino , CA property is unique, all retrofits must be customized for each building’s needs. Mega-Builders Inc. will design, engineer,  and acquire the permitting needed and retrofit the structure, all in-house.

Our team is highly-qualified and has extensive experience with complex soft story retrofitting In Encino, California.
