Seismic Retrofit Engineering

Our professional team has worked on retrofits for over 20 years.

National Engineering & Consulting, Inc. combines adaptable, innovative designs with fresh thinking and an unrivaled understanding of our client's need to ensure that modifications done to an existing building, through seismic retrofitting, produce a more secure environment.

Through seismic retrofitting, the existing structure is modified in order to increase its resistance to seismic motion or earthquake-induced failure.

Often, a seismic retrofit is the addition of structural enhancements that help keep a building, its workers, equipment and inventory safe from the effects of seismic activity.

Seismic retrofitting is seeing an increased demand due to owners aware of the benefits of retrofitting their properties. A seismic retrofit not only protects the employees, customers, equipment, and inventory inside a building, but can lower insurance premiums and save money. This attracts lenders and provides peace of mind and longevity for tenants.

NEC excels at analyzing buildings to assist owners in determining if a retrofit is necessary based on the current quality of the building. In cases where retrofits are deemed appropriate, National Engineering provides the ideal balance of design enhancements and the existing structure to keep costs in check for the property owner.

A seismic retrofit not only protects the employees, customers, equipment, and inventory inside a building, but can lower insurance premiums and save money.
