Retrofitting in Santa Monica
Santa Monica is one of the most desirable places to work and live in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it is one of the areas where the Los Angeles Ordinance is ordering retrofitting of many buildings. This ordinance is designed to prevent catastrophic damages to the area and the people living there. If your Santa Monica property meets the following requirements, you may need to start thinking about investing in retrofitting services.
- Two story or higher buildings crafted with or have existing wood frames
- Any structures built before January 1, 1978
- Soft-story buildings or buildings created with ground floor parking or an open floor space on the ground floor.
