A 1929 Upgrade
Seismic retrofit and major alteration of an existing 2 story reinforced concrete building originally built in 1929.
Los Angeles, CA
An old building gets a great new safety retrofit.
New RC shear walls and collectors per the current code are added to the building. Nonconventional techniques are used in design and detailing to overcome the existing conventional very deep foundation and existing floor beam/purlin system.
