Structural Retrofitting

One of the biggest dangers of living in a seismically active zone is that earthquake tremors can cause damage to building structures and even potentially endanger life.

Homes that are structurally retrofitted or upgraded can withstand the force generated by seismic waves much better than homes or buildings that have not been structurally retrofitted. In order to enhance or reinforce the structural integrity of a building, technical interventions, or processes commonly known as structural retrofitting is necessary. At LA Structural, we strive to deliver the best structural retrofitting Los Angeles as to offer.

Once a building has been structurally retrofitted, the earthquake resistance of the building increases substantially and it will be able to withstand the lateral and vertical pressure exerted during seismic activity much better.

Benefits of Structural Retrofitting

When you go in for a structural retrofitting for your building there are several aspects of the process that are advantageous to building owners. During a Los Angeles structural retrofitting, the building will not cut off access to the users or inhabitants – in fact, it can still be used while the retrofitting process is being carried out, in nearly all cases.

The cost of retrofitting construction work is relatively less compared to other structural upgrade solutions.

The use of both human and material resources is again relatively lower compared to other similar construction solutions.

Structural retrofitting generates relatively less construction debris compared to other similar construction techniques.

The process of structural retrofitting does not require any major or drastic changes to be made to the original shape and design or layout of the building – this is of particular importance if the building has some kind of historic or cultural importance.

Structural Retrofitting for Residential & Commercial Buildings Los Angeles

In Los Angeles structural retrofitting is considered necessary especially after a thorough structural inspection of the integrity and capacity of the building, the structure displays an inadequate capacity to withstand the vertical and lateral pressures exerted on the building during an earthquake.

A certain degree of damage can be expected – however, a building that fails to display the required capacity to resist the minimum acceptable degree of damage will have to undergo structural retrofitting. In a lot of cases, the kind of construction material used may be the primary reason for the vulnerability of the building structure. However, other elements such as new building codes, changing environmental conditions, as well the function of the building will also be considered when recommending structural retrofitting.
