PWCS provides earthquake reinforcement services to Soft Story buildings and Non-Ductile concrete commercial buildings. We are currently running and completing multiple Soft Story jobs, and our work is well praised by city inspectors and owners alike.


We’ve completed many seismic retrofit projects to Soft Story Buildings. We offer “value seismic engineering” and substantial seismic retrofit experience. We know what it takes to make it right from mandatory implementation of emergency gas shut off systems to adherence to strict fire and electrical safety standards, we can help retrofit any building with the devices and systems which you need to satisfy ever stricter local building codes.

With local anti-mansionization regulations in Los Angeles county, it is not always possible to add extra rooms to properties in the form of annexes and dedicated guest houses.

At Pacific West Construction Services, our retrofitting expertise can be called upon to help you make the most of the space which you already have in your home in your basement, loft, and/or any other unused areas. All you need to do is call or contact us directly in order to start discussing your specific retrofitting requirements in a little more detail.

From seismic bracing of older properties in the city of Los Angeles to full foundation repair services, Pacific West Construction Services specializes in helping implement the structural repairs and earthquake resistant building solutions which you need to rely on to add value and ensure the long-term structural viability of your property.

Of course, retrofitting properties in isn’t always undertaken just so as to address certain building code problems and structural weaknesses. Instead, retrofitting can also be carried out in order to add value and extra livability to properties through dedicated basement conversions.
