Earthquake Retrofit in Los Angeles
In 2015, Los Angeles County passed an ordinance that would require many older buildings in the region to be updated with what’s known as an “earthquake retrofit” or “seismic retrofit.” The goal of this unique type of renovation is to improve the structure and performance of these older buildings, making them safer to be in during seismic activity.
Unlike new building projects, retrofits add new structural features to old construction. To ensure that the results of an earthquake retrofit will be effective, it’s important to have it done by knowledgeable, experienced professionals like those at Mike Rovner Construction, Inc.
