THE QUAKE STRONG PROCESS

​Quake Strong handles the entire seismic retrofitting process from A To Z.  This includes financing, architecture, structural engineering, coordination for plan check and permitting, tenant management, construction, and cost recovery  And we send you weekly emails to keep you fully informed along the way.

PHASE 1: ​Even though the exterior of two buildings may look identical, e​ach ​structure is unique​ and has characteristics all their own. From wood beams to steel beams, the naked eye can only assume which material and connections are in fact holding your structure upright. We provide free building assessments in order to determine and present to you the all-in price for your specific seismic retrofitting needs.

PHASE 2: ​Quake Strong’s architecture​, ​engineering​ and construction​ team​ work together to​ ​performs exploratory testing. This information is used to ​design ​the most cost-effective and Quake Strong structural ​engineering solution for your building.

PHASE 3: While our architect collects measurements to create the architectural as-built drawings, our engineering team designs the structural engineering plans.​ While the structural engineer plans are designed, our Apartment Management Division collects all pertinent tenant and building information required by the city in order to complete, submit and have the Tenant Habitability Plan (THP) approved for each unit in your building. We manage all communication with your tenants and/or building manager (all construction notification dates, parking instructions, etc.), and should your tenants have any questions or concerns throughout the retrofitting process, our friendly staff is here to gladly assist.

PHASE 4: ​Once our team approves the design, the structural ​engineering plans are submitted to the city, the plan-check process begins. Quake Strong handles all ongoing corrections, plan revisions and communication between the city and engineer. Once the plans are approved by the city, we obtain the construction permit.

PHASE 5: ​We order steel and other materials and construction commences.

PHASE 6: Quake Strong handles all building inspections until the final inspection is passed, and your building is in compliance with the seismic retrofitting ordinance.

PHASE 7: For the final step, Quake Strong handles the Cost Recovery Program, so you can begin recouping the costs of your now improved building.
