Soft story retrofit Los Angeles building owners can rely on is very important because of the mandatory soft-story retrofit required for individual buildings in Los Angeles by the city of Los Angeles. A soft story building is a building with three or more stories located over a ground level with large openings such as parking garage, windows or series of retail businesses with large windows. Soft-story buildings are not adequately braced hence they are susceptible to collapse during an earthquake. Soft story retrofit involves the addition of reinforcement beams, structural joints, and joists. M.D.G.
