Wood framed buildings (also known as soft story wood framed buildings) are highly vulnerable to damage in an earthquake. If you own an apartment building in Marina del Rey, that was built before the current building codes, it is time to schedule a soft story retrofit consultation with the experts at The Foundation Works.
Wood framed buildings in Marina del Rey are at risk of collapsing during an earthquake, putting not only your tenants’ lives at risk, but also putting your financial investment at great risk. However, a soft story retrofit can reduce your risk by reinforcing and further securing your building to the ground below it. This is accomplished through erecting steel columns which are anchored to a subterranean steel and concrete design. From drafting of the engineering plans, to replacing any damaged stucco after completion, our team of experts at The Foundation Works is here to help safeguard your property with a custom soft story retrofit. Contact our team today with any questions or to schedule a consultation.
