As Foundation Experts Los Angeles, we're very aware of the dangers a Soft Story Building faces in the event of an earthquake. When the owner of this soft story building realized the danger as well, he got us Earth Quake Retrofitting his building ASAP, because as we all know, in LA, earthquakes happen.
So we got the process started, with permits for Foundation Structural Repair in Los Angeles. With them in hand we went to our engineers and got our plans together for the Soft Story Retrofit. Got engineering plans approved within a week and started construction (yep, we are fast). NOTE: The photo below is the soft story retrofit project days before we started construction.
We always try and work with the existing design when doing a soft story project. When this soft story retrofit is done, visually the building will look the same. But as Foundation Specialist in Los Angeles for decades, you know it's structure will be rock solid, and earthquake safe.
The beauty is, you will never know Sinai Construction Engineering was ever there. And that's just the way we like it. Stay tuned for finished soft story retrofit project. Have questions, contact Foundation Experts in Los Angeles, or give us a call at (323) 655-0960. We've been doing this for decades and love to share our expertise...
