Soft story retrofit progress...

Updated: Oct 12, 2023


We can spell out the process and tell you step by step what it will look like. However, it will never be the same as showing you. Below you will see our progress so far to this immense soft story project in the beautiful city of Los Angeles.

We begin with an inspection. Sinai Construction sends out an expert to inspect the building or home to determine the required work and solutions to your specific needs. For this building we have below ground parking and the apartment stories above it, hence the soft story name. With the activity of any earthquake, we needed to secure the structure.


After a detailed inspection, we begin our demolition process to begin reinforcing the existing structure. We remove existing stucco to open and remove insulation. Once all of it is removed, we have demolished concrete and removed it off site we can clean up. Now we have a fresh look at the structure with which we are working with.

After hours of demolition and removal we now have a clear view to begin the next steps when securing a soft story building. We proceed with installing rebar, tying rebar to creating a reinforcing cage beneath the trench previously excavated. Proceed by installing steel beams which are welded in place. Our team inspects the work and prepares for a long day's work of pouring concrete. While it is oddly satisfying to see the concrete be poured, our team is very meticulous and clean to ensure the outcome is satisfying and precise.
