When Sinai Soft Story Retrofit does a Los Angeles soft story building project, there are lots of soft story support options, depending on the building. But more times than not, we build a steel frame into the existing soft story buildings structure for earthquake proof support.
But the one thing that is always the same with every soft story construction job, is we also dig into the original foundation and do a major structural reinforcing of the foundation as well. This is what carries all the weight and helps hold the building together in an earthquake. Lots of people don't talk so much about this, but it's key and not something to cut corners on.
We have decades of experience in soft story retrofit construction and a long list of happy clients. So if you're in the market for some soft story retrofit construction, give us a call. I'm sure we can save you some money, and a whole lot of headaches.
