Earthquake Retrofit

Quality Work When It Counts

At Army of Builders, our promise to you is that all of your earthquake retrofit buildings are safe, strong, and secure when tragedy strikes. For all of our retrofit projects, our goal is to ensure that our clients save time, money, and most importantly, lives.

Buildings that were constructed prior to 1978 were built according to the building codes at that time. However, the times have changed and earthquake protection has become more and more crucial for new constructions. But when it comes to protecting your older, soft-story building, these buildings are more prone to damage and collapse. We provide a soft-story retrofit solution designed to strengthen the first story or the soft-story, to ensure that we can improve the building’s seismic performance dramatically.

How An Earthquake Retrofit Can Help You

While the upper stories of your building may still experience some issues when it comes to seismic performance, a soft-story earthquake retrofit is specifically designed to increase the seismic performance of your building as a whole by a long-shot. This type of retrofit helps to boost the performance of the soft-story of your building so that it can stand tall in the event that an earthquake strikes.
