seismic engineers and expert contractors.

Don’t Risk Your Buildings Or Your Inhabitants Safety For Another Minute Longer

We are the Army Of Builders and our company helps LA building owners - just like you - save time, money and lives, and get the protection they need with expertly executed soft story retrofitting.

Right now there’s a good chance your building is at risk from collapse during an earthquake - due to it being a soft story building.

People in high-risk areas such as Los Angeles (and soon - many places over the United States) are often left in financial ruins when the unexpected happens and they don’t have the protection they need. We can easily show you if you’re exposed to earthquake collapse, and how you can quickly and cost-effectively get retrofitted so you and your people are safe when tragedy strikes.


What Would Happen If Your Soft Story Building Collapsed?

Many people in high-risk buildings don’t think about what could happen if there is a serious earthquake and the soft story collapsed.

Loss of property - or worse - can occur, and repair costs would be through the roof. Complete demolition and rebuilding is likely the best solution after soft story collapse, as it’s too late to do anything else.

When you have completed a soft story retrofit, you can relax because you’re covered when something terrible happens.

Why Retrofit Soft Story, Or Open-Front Buildings?

All buildings constructed prior to 1978 were built according to the codes at that time. This means the buildings used materials and finishes that are non-ductile with low displacement capabilities. Simply put, these building types very are prone to earthquake damage, and in some case, to building collapse.

In a soft-story building, the ‘weakest link’ is the soft-story, so a retrofit solution that addresses the weakest link will provide the most cost-effective benefit. The upper stories may still have issues, but as long as these issues are not made worse, a first-story retrofit will improve the building’s seismic performance.

Are You Protecting Your Most Valuable Asset?

For years, districts in California have recommended the retrofitting of thousands of residential soft-story buildings. San Francisco, Berkeley and Los Angeles have already passed laws which require a mandatory retrofit.

These laws clearly show American families living in buildings with a soft story are vulnerable. Make sure you get your building the right protection so you know you’re covered if the unthinkable happens.

We estimate there are over 18,000 buildings which are at risk if an earthquake should occur. If a major earthquake happens, 80% of these buildings would collapse or be damaged beyond repair as a result.
