The City of Los Angeles passed an ordinance (Ordinance 183893)
which requires the retrofit of pre-1978 wood frame soft story buildings and non-ductile concrete buildings. If you own or manage one of these two types of buildings Total Building Care can help. We can walk you through the steps in the process from finding the right structural engineer to get the plans approved by the city, to submitting the Tenant Habitability Plan (THP) to housing, and of course completing the construction portion of the project to gain final sign off from the Los Angeles Department of Building Safety.

Contact our office and we will have one of our retrofit specialist schedule an initial consultation to learn more about your building and potential project. We will then turn it over to a structural engineer for an initial evaluation and subsequently provide you with a proposal for the structural engineering study-the first step in the compliance process. We have completed many seismic retrofit projects and have the experience to anticipate what’s around the corner to take your project to final sign off from the City of Los Angeles. And, we also work with building owners in the neighboring cities as the mandatory retrofit program spreads to other parts of Southern California.
Please contact our office at 888-589-4238
to schedule a time for one of our project managers to come out to take a look at your project. You can also reach us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
