Structural Repairs For Commercial Buildings

Structural Repairs

Soft-Story buildings are not seismically sound.

Solutions for Earthquake Seismic Retrofitting for:

Apartment Building Soft Story

Structural Repairs reinforce and strengthen soft-first-story buildings.

The 1994 Northridge Earthquake left many apartment complexes collapsed at the soft story portion. Weinstein Retrofitting Systems specializes in soft story reinforcement and can strengthen any multifamily apartment complex so when the Big One strikes, your apartment will still stand, saving lives, cars, and property.

Unreinforced Brick and Masonry Commercial Building

Buildings built with unreinforced masonry need to be strengthened.

Buildings built of unreinforced masonry (URM) – brick, hollow clay tiles, stone, concrete blocks, or adobe – are very likely to be damaged in earthquakes because the mortar holding the masonry together may not be strong enough to resist earthquake forces. Strengthening unreinforced masonry requires anchoring the walls to the floors and roof, adding interior partitions or walls, installing braces, or other measures.

Industrial Building/Tilt-Up
Structural Repairs

Buildings can be strengthened through structural repairs.

When earthquakes shake the ground, the various parts of buildings may move in different directions. If the connections (anchorage) between concrete or reinforced masonry walls, wood floors, and roof are weak, walls can pull away. Then, the building, or a portion of it, may collapse. Tilt-up buildings are particularly dangerous because they possess many structural weaknesses since they have large openings for industrial sized doors and windows, which offer little stability for the structure.

Office Building

Without reinforcement, buildings can crumble under the pressure of an earthquake.

The contents of your building can be damaged or can cause damage in earthquakes. They may injure your building occupants or block emergency exits; it can be expensive to repair and replace items that are broken. You should be concerned about contents, not only to protect your property but also to guard against deaths or injuries. We offer the solutions for earthquake seismic retrofitting to brace your property, equipment, light fixtures, and acoustic style ceilings.
