Spend Your Money Wisely on a Good Retrofit | Retrofit Pros Tip

My 20 years of construction experience did not prepare me for this 😱 I've seen too many seismic retrofit designs for soft story buildings that don't do enough to protect the building. In some cases, property owners have spent more than $10,000 for engineering services but are only getting "mediocre" designs because they often rely on canti levered column solutions (OCCS/SCCS).
