Soft Story Retrofit Construction

Contact us for a free project evaluation either by email or phone 310-349-3223

The retrofit process includes construction. Some buildings consisting of wooden frames that were constructed prior to 1978 are referred to as a soft story building. In most cases, buildings of this magnitude contain wide doors, large spaces, or other openings in places where a shear wall installation would be required for stability. Once your plans are approved, our team of professionals will start the building process.
