Julian Construction attended the Seismic Retrofit event at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Monday.
Joined by fellow Los Angeles-based contractors and engineering firms, Julian Construction provided information and raised awareness about LA’s retrofit program.
Los Angeles recently passed a mandatory retrofit program where, under Ordinance 183893 and Ordinance 184081, soft-story buildings deemed vulnerable to earthquake damage and/or collapse must be retrofitted to lessen these structural weaknesses.
Most of the structures identified are multi-story buildings with a weak first floor (typically structures with tuck-under-parking and open fronts).
If you own an apartment building that consists of two or more stories with wood-frame construction, a structure that was built before January 1, 1978 (prior to the implementation of safer building codes) or a building that contains ground floor parking or comparable open spaces, contact Julian Construction to get a free inspection.
