What is a Soft-Story Building?
Soft-story buildings are multi-story properties that have one or more floors that are designed with large openings. These openings can be anything from large windows, wide doors, or open- floor plans. These types of design features generally make a building less structurally sound, but certain practices can keep buildings like this secure. At National Seismic Retrofit, we specialize in soft-story retrofitting so you can create the building of your dreams without compromising on stability.
