Soft Story Seismic Retrofitting is the modification of existing structures to make them more resistant to seismic activity, ground motion, or soil failure due to earthquakes.
1. Increasing the global capacity (strengthening). This
is typically done by the addition of cross braces or new
2. Increasing the local capacity of structural elements. This strategy recognizes the inherent capacity within the existing structures, and therefore adopts a more cost-effective approach to selectively upgrade local capacity (deformation/ductility, strength or stiffness) of individual structural components.
3. Allowing sliding connections such as passageway bridges to accommodate additional movement between seismically independent structures.
4.Exterior reinforcement of building.
5. Exterior concrete columns.

Builders Unlimited Inc. understands that a commercial
renovation is always a considerable investment. Not only
does it draw on your business’s capital but the end result
needs to be carefully considered in a way that improves
not only the appearance of your workplace but also your
bottom line. Each unique business model requires careful
