Phase 1 of our seismic engineering services begins after the proposal has been accepted.
SRS Retrofit works throughout the Los Angeles to help multi-unit apartment building owners seismically retrofit their buildings to ensure their building is up-to-date and code-compliant with the City of Los Angeles’ latest ordinances. One of our specialists will schedule an exploratory site visit. To ensure transparency for your tenants, we post a 48-hour tenant notice prior to the site visit.
Once the exploratory site visit has been performed and the report has been completed, our team performs the full exploratory, which includes tearing back to the beams, joists, and stud walls. Then, we cut and excavate the concrete pad footing to check the current integrity and size, so everything is accurately reported and addressed in the plans. This step is followed by collecting asbestos and lead samples that are sent in for testing to better understand the composition of the building. Once the architectural and structural plans are completed, our our team composes calculations and designs that are then implemented into the following stages of seismic retrofitting.
