SEISMIC RETROFITTING

The City of Los Angeles recently passed Ordinance 183893, which requires the retrofit of soft-story buildings and non-ductile concrete buildings. The goal of the mandatory retrofit programs, under the ordinance, is to reduce structural deficiencies and improve the performance of these buildings during earthquakes.

  • 2 YEARS: Submit proof of previous retrofit, or plans to retrofit or demolish.

  • 3.5 YEARS: Obtain permit to start construction or demolition. 

  • 7 YEARS: Complete construction.
