Many cities in the region are mandating that property owners carry out structural retrofits to soft stories in order 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.
Mega Builders will carefully inspect the building to isolate the most practical and cost efficient solution. Utilizing our decades of experience we are able to design and engineer in a way to save on the construction costs. Each building must be evaluated individually.
Common solutions utilized are steel moment frames and plywood shear walls (strengthening existing walls). This adds the proper support the structure will need against seismic activity. As each property is unique, all retrofits must be customized for each property. Mega Builders will design, engineer, 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 Los Angeles. Call us today to schedule an appointment today!
