Soft Story buildings require

In Los Angeles, many buildings have a problem with "underparking". That means the building has a weak structure that could be dangerous if there is an earthquake. If the structure is weak, the upper floors could fall onto the lower floors, which could be very dangerous for anyone inside. This is called "pancake collapse".

To fix this problem, the state of California has created a program to help building owners fix their structures. One company that can help is Sinai Construction. They have lots of experience fixing buildings like this, and they can help you make sure your building is safe.

When you hire Sinai Construction, they will do a "Foundation Health Check" to see if your building needs any repairs. They will then figure out what needs to be done and make a plan. They will label the parts of the building that need to be removed and take care to only remove the necessary parts. They will then add new materials to make the building stronger.

Many of these buildings have old materials like stucco and wood that need to be replaced. Sinai Construction can help you replace these materials or make them stronger so that your building is safer during an earthquake. By working with Sinai Construction, you can make sure that your building is safe and that you and your tenants can sleep without worrying about what might happen during an earthquake.
